LXer: This week at LWN: In defense of Ubuntu
Published at LXer:

Criticisms of the Ubuntu distribution and Canonical, its corporate sponsor, are not hard to come by. Depending on who is speaking, Ubuntu and Canonical are guilty of profiting from the free software community without giving back to it, forking important projects or distributions, legitimizing the use of binary-only system components, and more. Of all of these gripes, it is the "contributing to the community" complaint which is heard most. If one believes these complaints, Ubuntu is a parasitic operation which does not understand how the community works and which is harmful to the community as a whole.
