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.

But that's not what they are saying, read Mark Shuttleworth's blog post; he compares Ubuntu to GNOME, X, linux kenrel, etc. He wants to confuse people into thinking that Canonical is part of the community. That's is a lie, nothing more than a PR stunt.

Pfft. You're talking about lying and then you throw claims like that out? Talk about hypocrisy!

Face it, Canonical does a whole LOT of stuff that no one else does and as such, they DO collaborate and take part in the whole Linux community. Code is definitely not the only thing one can contribute and definitely not the most important part either.
