You can quote me on that.
At least Mark Shuttleworth has done a million times more for the adoption of linux and open source in this world (out of his own pocket) than you who hides behind a nick and posts insulting statements.

Mark Shuttleworth is actually making a mark and should be commended for his efforts. And -- dare I say it in this forum -- Ubuntu is not bad, even if I prefer to run Slackware.

How could you? I forget that there is a lot of Linux exposure due to Mark's efforts.

I think, Google had done way more for open source than Canonical, especially by sponsoring code contribution via "Summer of Code".

Ubuntu has also failed at their main project goal (see bug #1). I don't think, Ubuntu will outlive Slackware.

I say live and let live.
I really love Slackware, but I also try a lot of other distros/BSDs. If you think that Mark is so stupid why do you run an Ubuntu derivative? I think all distros have something to offer in that they provide an alternative to people who are dissatisfied with proprietary software.

Thanks for a good laugh!

I had been testing Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Server, desktop, KDE desktop) for a very brief period of time before I quickly got annoyed by the general lack of Quality Assurance. I remember asking on their mailing list how it came that Ubuntu Server didn't display any startup messages, and if there was a way to get them back, since I had to do some debugging on a LAN with centralized authentication. I was curtly told that nowadays nobody in their right mind needed startup messages. Well, maybe future versions can replace all this blank space by a 30-second-advertisement.
