Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu How surprised would you be, if I walked up to you and told you that every human needs oxygen to survive? I'm assuming that you wouldn't at all be surprised - you might start feeling a little uneasy that a random stranger walked up to you with such a crazy question, but you wouldn't be surprised by the we-need-oxygen fact. Apparently, people are surprised that Ubuntu is not a democracy.

Ubuntu has never labeled itself as a "democracy" nor has this ever been kept a secret. From day one, Shuttleworth has been referred to as the "sabdfl" or "self-appointed benevolent dictator for life."

Certain aspects of Ubuntu might be rather democratic but that does not necessarily imply that the design process must be democratic.
