Ubuntu itself doesn't make any money. Canonical (the people responsible for bringing you Ubuntu) however make money by offering support to the corporate sector. Some members of Canonical are on a salary.

Instead of listening to 'hearsay' google your question and you will get the facts..

frankly, you're posting only questions on this site, and no answers as far as I've seen.
Besides your questions are usually one line long and look like school homework.
Bottom line is you should use google to do your research, instead of asking in a forum.

The new versions of Ubuntu can bring in some pennies for Canonical every time somebody makes a purchase through Banshee using Amazon's MP3 store.

Ubuntu also has a Software Center that sells commercial apps.

There is also the Ubuntu One service which is similar to DropBox and it has a monthly fee.

Canonical received millions in startup funds from their billionaire patron. As far as I know they are not turning a profit.

'Patron'? I'd say 'owner'.

Considering the lack of transparency in the tax haven known as the isle of man, we dont really know if canonical is, or is not, turning a profit.
