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.

I'd say Launchpad is pretty big and Landscape isn't exactly small.
Anyway, there always has to be a first large project, you don't get a lot of them under your belt by magic.

This is much more low level than any of their other projects.

It's funny, on one hand people complain that Canonical don't contribute enough and create enough innovative projects.
On the other hand people complain about their new and innovative projects.

It is new, but I wouldn't say it is innovative. People were fairly interested in their phone and tablet project because it is different to anything else out there. This is called reinventing the wheel.
