Ever typed 'ubuntu.com' in your web browser? Yeah, that's right... The saint Shuttleworth uses the same ugly techniques as domain scammers.

If I wanted to go to cannonical's website, I wouldn't have typed 'ubuntu.com'... So much for the Ubuntu Foundation...

O-M-F-G. I can't believe my eyes -- clearly, it is completely outrageous for them to reserve it.

As a further blow to capitalism from the GNU/Linux community, they reserve ubuntu.com also, hindering advertising.

Ummm.....I typed "ubuntu.com" and I went to the Ubuntu Linux website. Not Canonical's:

http://www.canonical.com/

Nor Mark's personal page:

http://www.markshuttleworth.com/

Whats the big deal? That Ubuntu Linux uses the "ubuntu.com" and the "ubuntulinux.com/org" domains? If you think that is evil or bad, your moral compass is WAY off.
