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.

"right now I'm attacking it because of the copyright assignment requirement for contributing to their projects


So funny you say that, cause you have to have to do the same if you want to contribute to Qt
"

Qt makes some sense because it has a commercial version and it would make quite the mess when contributions cannot flow into the commercial version: you don't want the two to stray apart too far.

GNU, on the other hand.... but it looks like they're starting to loosen up too ( http://www.gnu.org/licenses/why-assign.html )
