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.

I am glad Ubuntu exists

Every user Ubuntu brings to Linux is another user that commercial companies can market to, build drivers for, etc. Instead of fighting among ourselves why don't we all work towards making Linux better. I personally don't care if someone uses Ubuntu, Slackware, Debian, or any of hundreds of other distros I care that they are using a system that works the way they do and that they enjoy doing it.
I want to say thanks to Mark and every other person that made or helped make Ubuntu what it is.
