Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu If there's one consistent piece of criticism that gets lobbed in Canonical's and Mark Shuttleworth's direction, it's that they do not contribute enough code - or anything else for that matter - to the Free software world. Mark Shuttleworth has apparently had enough, and has written a very, very lengthy blog post detailing how he feels about this criticism.

This is right up there with the people that complain about the Novell/MS agreement, Mono, or insert thing they hate about the FOSS ecosystem.

At the end of the day no group does enough so lets hate them all. In fact lets close down all FOSS projects seeing as no one can meet the communities high standards.

Google Sucks because they used H.264
Oracle Sued Google How dare they.
Novell Made a Deal with MS
Canonical doesn't do Enough.
RedHat Abandoned the Desktop and Make some Windows only software.
IBM sued over Patents.
KDE started as closed source, is unstable, and to complex.
Gnome treats users Like morons.

Do I really need to go on? At least for me if they don't break the terms of the License, then they have done enough.
