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.

They ARE a part of the open source community. They release their source code.

Being part of the community is NOT defined as pushing EVERYTHING upstream.

Show me where being part of the community is defined as pushing everything upstream.

How can you be part of a community without contributing? And again, we are not talking about Ubuntu, but Canonical. And the statistics show they contribute almost nothing.
