Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth: "I simply have zero interest in the crowd who wants to be different. Leet. 'Linux is supposed to be hard so it's exclusive' is just the dumbest thing that a smart person could say." He's right. Lots of interesting insights in this blog post - I may not agree with everything Ubuntu does, but at least it's doing something.

the line is a strawman. (...) If I'm wrong and someone actually did say what shuttleworth is quoting, can someone key me in with the source? Thanks


I'm not sure if he quoted something specific, but unfortunately I do recognize the attitude he describes. In fact just this week I got a rather similar response in the #archlinux IRC channel (though they don't appear to have any public logs).

As for sources, a google for "you should not be using linux" turns up some of it.
