Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Who says the open source and Free software world only copy but never innovate? Over at Canonical's design blog - you know, the company which does nothing for the Linux world *cough* - someone named Christian Giordano has shared some ideas about how Ubuntu - and therefore, the rest of the Linux world - could make use of hardware sensors to better serve its users. Pretty interesting stuff.

ideas are cheap. With Canonical's track record I am not impressed unless I see ~ideas~ turned into working code

Well, here's one Ubuntu idea (albeit, a bit old one now) that I wouldn't like to see turned into reality:

"Canonical believes that in the near future, GNU/Linux users that are currently spread among a plethora of distributions will be concentrated around 2 or 3 main distributions."

That's the vision about the future of GNU/Linux that Canonical representatives have communicated to one of their derivative distros about half a decade ago. Maybe Canonical have changed their vision in the last five years but, unfortunately, I don't see too many signs that they have.
