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.

For people who agree with freedom, they do come down rather hard on anyone who uses technology that some deem to be outside the circles of GNU/Linux(I feel gross using this term, this is the last time I'll use it -- I promise.)

If Mir is a mistake, fine, let them make their mistake. If some snobby developers from Wayland or X (who obviously don't have an agenda *rolls eyes*) think its crappy code, then so be it.

Continue doing what you're (Wayland/X devs) doing, whatever it is you're doing.

From the start its been clear that Ubuntu is closer to Android Linux than GN... -- than traditional Linux, so why stress the fact that it eschews what traditionally has never been a part of Android?
