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 is not evil. What's evil is the walled garden practices of Apple and the likes. Want people to be free of them? Then promote FOSS, be it Ubuntu, Fedora or your pet project.

Also, last I heard, RedHat controlled most of GNOME's direction. How's that for not being, as you put it, evil? They control the DE that is used in most distributions!

As Fettarme H-Milch said; as closed as most of Apple is, and even through don't claim to be part of the linux community, they still contribute more than Canonical.
