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.

Canonical can provide value to their users and not contribute to the linux community at the same time


You seriously believe that Ubuntu users are not part of "the linux community"?

Didn't you get the memo? Only people who contribute code are members of the community.

Users, documentation writers, translators, icon/etc. artists, bug reporters, usability researchers, marketing departments, and so on, are all leeches.

Silly me, I must tell the artists, testers, technical authors, researchers, analysts and the marketing department at work that they contribute nothing of value to our company products and eco-system.

Though I think i'll follow this nutter's example and say it via electronic means as I value my knee-caps!
