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.

" Anyone ever considered how sweet if would be if canonical paid developers to contribute to upstream?


Yes, because as we all know, money grows on trees. Let's just hire a few more developers to satisfy the whiners because they are too narrow-minded to think outside of "lines of c0de omg haxx0rz!".
"

Of course not! That would be unselfish, like the nansy-pansies at RedHat, instead, let's be evil and care only about our products.
