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.

Um WHAT? thats a crude analagy. Its not like they didn't open source their code contributions. Im sure the first thing they've contributed in the 'Big Code Drop' method has to be the multitouch. Is it well documented? Is it integratable in other distros? Otherwise, (https://launchpad.net/lazr ) the parts of launchpad and their contrizutions to gnome.


Microsoft also has open source code, that doesn't mean they collaborate.

Linux already has multi-touch; it's called MPX. Ubuntu is yet again not collaborating and going in an entirely different direction.

No, it's "Don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining."

If you want to claim to be a part of the open source community, then contribute. If you're a part of the family, then take out the garbage, wash the dishes, mow the grass once in a while. Guests are always welcome, but don't be surprised if you're not received as warmly as family is.
