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.

"Yes, Apple is a good example of a lecher company.

How is Apple a leecher company given the number of open source projects they have employees working on. LLVM, Webkit, Launchd, libdispatch and so on. Please, tell, me where is Apple 'leeching' or is this just a hissy fit from a person who wants a Mac but is unable to buy one?

Ok, I was thinking on FreeBSD, but you are right, on other projects they do contribute.
