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.

How many more people know about linux and have tried it thanks to Ubuntu.


I don't know How many more people DO know? Anecdotally I certainly didn't notice any uptick in conversion.

Yeah, that was anecdotal, and I knew it would garner a response like yours. But, anecdotally, I have seen more excitement online when Ubuntu first arrived on scene, AND it topped the linux distro list for a long time, if it still isn't. That isn't anecdotal.
