Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Mark Shuttleworth is the founder of Thawte, the first certification authority to sell public SSL certificates. After selling Thawte to Verisign, Mark moved on to training as an astronaut in Russia and visiting space. Once he got back he founded Ubuntu, the leading GNU/Linux distribution. He agreed on releasing a quick interview to Free Software Magazine." One of the more interesting quotes: "With Ubuntu, it's still too early to say we've been successful. My personal goal is to make the distro sustainable - then there will be a team that pays its own way and can focus on producing the best free software desktop on the planet without my interference!"

Interviewer Bias...

This wasn't an interview, it was some guy kissing MarkS's ass...

I use Ubuntu, but I don't see it as perfect, and I don't see MarkS as a God.

This interviewer spent far too long sucking up to Mr.Shuttleworth and not long enough asking about stuff that matters.

It's nice to see that Shuttleworth hasn't let the fame go to his head, he seems like a very well-grounded chap!
