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.

"That's like a priest arguing that he is not a pedophile because he pays taxes...


I'm sorry, but you're a troll. Equating Canonical's efforts to paedophilia? Wtf? Seriously?

If I were Mark I'd told your precious "community" to fcuk off and I'd buy an island.

You are comparing them, I am making a point that A != B, C != D. You are the one taking word out of context and saying A = C. You are the one trolling. Fix your logic.

So when you start out a sentence with "That's like" that is not a comparison? Oh and your analogies are shit.

His logic is fine.

An apple is like a banana. They're both fruits.
Canonical is like a priest who sins but pays taxes. They are both evil.

Yes but its still a comparison. You are comparing Canonical to a priest who doesn't pay taxes. That was my argument. Stick to the car analogies that seems to be the accepted form here. Leave pedophiles, priests and hookers out of the conversation. Oh and Nazis.

Can't you follow logic?

A=Everyone must pay taxes
B=Priest pays taxes
C=Priest hasn't abused children

A=1, B=1

C remains indeterminable; IOW A and B are irrelevant

A=GPL doesn't enforce contributions
B=Canonical follows the GPL
C=Canonical doesn't contribute

A=1, B=1

C remains indeterminable; IOW A and B are irrelevant

Is that clear, or do you need a diagram?
