Shuttleworth answers Ubuntu Linux’s critics


In recent weeks, Ubuntu has been criticized for not giving Linux enough support. Specifically, the complains have been that Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, doesn’t do enough for producing Linux source code. At first, Mark Shuttleworth, Ubuntu and Canonical’s founder, was content to take the high-ground of broad issues, but now Shuttleworth has gotten more into the details of what he believes both he personally and Ubuntu has brought to Linux.

In Shuttleworth’s latest blog post, he wrote about how Ubuntu and Canonical has brought “the extraordinary generosity of the free software community to the world at large, as a gift, free of charge, unencumbered and uncrippled, and to do so sustainably.”
