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.

Ubuntu doesn't care about being about a member of the community. They care instead of providing a good, easy to use distro. They do that very well.

As others have said, GPL doesn't say anything about contributing back. As long as the modified code is released, then they have no further obligations. It's no different than me doing my little pet distro and releasing it.
