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.

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


Right, because Apple talks about XNU on apple.com/macosx all the time, and the Windows 7 page is riddled with references to the NT kernel.

Funny how people hammer on and on about how Linux is not an operating system, yet when Ubuntu adheres to that meme, it's suddenly an evil plot to destroy Linux.
