Linux "Linux vendor Canonical said it has 'no interest' in Linux kernel development. Two weeks ago a Linux Foundation report showed that since version 2.6.32, Microsoft had committed more code to the Linux kernel than Canonical. Since then, Canonical has faced claims from rivals that it does not contribute to Linux as much as it should given its popularity. Recently Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth told The Inquirer that his company has no interest in contributing to the Linux kernel." Why is this such a bad thing? You can contribute more to open source than code alone. Like, I don't know, users?

Awww. I dont think so.

Ubuntu brought users to the linux world wheras other distributions rather shooed them off.

I know people that switched to other distributions and started only because of Ubuntu.
You might not understand it but sometimes people need an "attractor". There are other good examples as well with other software.

Honestly, its a great starter distro that helps to dive in the world of linux (Well.. im not talking about 11 or 12...).
