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!"

"Distrowatch is tottally irrelevant in everything GNU/Linux , Distrowatch dont contribute code , Distrowatch dont pay anything with its own money , Distrowatch dont send free CD , distrowatch dont support anything GNU/Linux. Distrowatch dont make any distribution. Distrowatch dont encourage others to participate in GNU/Linux."

Doesn't Distrowatch's non participation in any distro making make their rankings more relevant and neutral????

I mean isn't it better for a non- participating entity to bring out the results of a contests... Imagine Ubuntu/Red Hat releasing a top 10 distro ranking list!
