Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu If there's one consistent piece of criticism that gets lobbed in Canonical's and Mark Shuttleworth's direction, it's that they do not contribute enough code - or anything else for that matter - to the Free software world. Mark Shuttleworth has apparently had enough, and has written a very, very lengthy blog post detailing how he feels about this criticism.

My only problem with Ubuntu is that they often do idiotic things which destabilize the distro and impair their ability to say "Look, we're ready for general use" like jumping on PulseAudio before it was mature or releasing a client-side WinDeco hack with horrible architecture.

And removing the Gimp without having a suitable replacement.

And no, before anyone asks, F-Spot is not a suitable replacement. In fact, I wouldn't recommend *anyone* use a program that requires "importing" all the users relevant files (by creating copies of all their photos) before allowing the user to use it. Not to mention, it is simply worthless for any image modification whatsoever.

In KDE, there are at least a few potential Gimp replacement candidates; GNOME doesn't have any worthy alternatives that I know of yet. Yet, Ubuntu already kicked it to the curb.
