Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Perhaps most likely to raise some eyebrows is that Ubuntu 13.04 will let users purchase music or apps directly from the desktop Dash, without having to open a browser or a separate client." That's going to go down well.

They have an identity crises and that should have been solved years ago. They came out with a desktop version of Ubuntu, then quickly decided they would embrace netbooks. Well netbooks died and Ubuntu never made it big on netbooks anyway. Now they want to break into tablets and have done a terrible job doing so. All the while their server product is crap compared to Debian, CentOS/Redhat, and SUSE and has almost no way of making money.

Now they are rumored to want to do more with set-top boxes? What a terrible idea. Android forks can and will dominate this market. Canonical needs to figure out what they want to do, 2 years ago, and stick with it. By trying to be the jack of all trades, they are becoming the master of none.
