So that is how you measure worthiness in "Linuxland"? That shouldn't be an obligation.


It's just an observation. Oracle gets bashed and derided for building off RHEL even though they contribute btrfs and yet Ubuntu gets a free pass and contributes nothing.

So what? It's not on the front page. Anyone that's interested can find out for themselves.

It says a lot about his true intentions. He wants to disassociate Linux from Ubuntu in the public's mind.

I don't really care but I'm surprised by how many in Linuxland are on board with him. If Ubuntu ever got anywhere with the public he would no doubt push some type of application lock-in. He would probably go the Google route of using a non-standard (but open source) API to discourage porting.
