Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "HP, the worlds biggest PC vendor as of 2012, has today launched a brand new all-in-one PC running Ubuntu. But the real 'wow' factor comes from its pricing. At just GBP 349 HP have pitched the PC well within the reach of your average consumer. A similar, though not identical, model is also available with Windows 8 priced at GBP 499."

I think the "forgetting where they came from" might be directed at the whole mir display server thing.

That reeks of NIH syndrome. Ubuntu tried bashing Wayland to explain the decision, but had to reverse course when wayland devs spoke up.

Ubuntu just scored as being the prototypical linux distro with steam, but with mir Steam will end up kind of forking it, if they use it at all. Bullet meet foot.

They had Unity 2D written in QT, then dropped it leaving Unity in GTK only. Then decided to rewrite it for Mobile in QT. Now they are standardizing unity on all form factors in QT.

It kind of looks like they don't have as much technical vision as they like to pretend.
