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.

The end-users perhaps (which is called distribution), not the linux community.


Making such a clear distinction between the "Community" and "end-users" worries me...

It is a worrying sign of the mentality which is holding some OSS projects back as far as the "ready for the desktop" kind of realm is concerned... where UI design, usability, sane defaults, and a generally "it just works" feeling rule or should rule.
