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.

It's not anything that prevents them, it's just that Canonical decided to focus on one thing: the desktop. Blaming them for this is like blaming Samsung for taking Android and putting a skin on top of it.

Exactly, they do Y, not X, where X is collaborating. Canonical can collaborate, just like other companies, they just chose not to.

Let's repeat what you are saying; Canonical has no intention of collaborating.

Anyone that doesn't collaborate can't be considered part of the team. Linux, GNOME, KDE, X.org, Fedora, Archlinux, they all collaborate, they are part of the team. Canonical doesn't, therefore they are not part of the team.
