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.

Why? Because Ubuntu made Linux visible and usable for a lot of people and end users.

That's a lot of contribution.

First fact:
Pretty much all usability work in GNOME ("the Linux GUI") was done by Sun.

Second fact:
Canonical does not make "Linux" visible. In fact they try very hard to avoid using that term at all on ubuntu.com.
