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.

From support costs. You are aware RedHat doesn't magically make money appear, right?

"support costs"? What does that even mean? RedHat is a company, just like any other company their primary goal is to make money, and they do, and they reserve part of that money to support the linux community, and contribute.

What prevents Canonical from doing the same?
