Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This could potentially be quite big for Ubuntu and Linux in general. Canonical and the Chinese government have announced a collaboration to build a version of Ubuntu specifically for the Chinese market, which will become the reference architecture for standard operating systems in the country.

Can you point me to the forums where "people are angry at Canonical for this"?

I see no comments on Ubuntu forums, two generally supportive comments on OmgUbuntu, nothing on Planet Ubuntu, @Ubuntu's tweet has 18 retweets and a fav and all but one comment positive, and the CEO's (@silbs) tweet has 11 retweets and 5 favourites and no comments.

Where should I be looking for this angry mob, exactly?

BTW, I run virtually the same apps on my Windows and SUSE boxes at work and my Ubuntu box at home. Writing cross-platform is freaking trivial - I'd personally recommend Qt and Python, but the list of quality options is far too long to provide here.

When a developer writes for a specific platform, it's because she wants to wring the absolute best experience for that platform. If you want multi-platform, use a somewhat more generic competitor that also supports Windows (ahem).
