Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth: "I simply have zero interest in the crowd who wants to be different. Leet. 'Linux is supposed to be hard so it's exclusive' is just the dumbest thing that a smart person could say." He's right. Lots of interesting insights in this blog post - I may not agree with everything Ubuntu does, but at least it's doing something.

That's not the way how Canonical should be working though. I'm all for them driving change, but they should be working with the community.


What the hell does that even mean? There is no 'community'; there's only people with 9,000 different opinions. It's not like you have thousands of people working toward a common goal, and Canonical going the opposite direction as everyone else. It's more like many groups who are doing their own thing, and somehow manage to cobble together an OS that actually works.

If Canonical has to say 'fuck all ya'll' and rebuild the whole thing from the ground up in order to build something that really feels cohesive, then I say go for it.
