              It was more a reference to the overall... I dont know... Maybe it was just the quotes Michael picked but Mark seemed to be a little 'crazed' when talking about "the bottom edge!" My comment was a joke that the crazed attitude was a response to Mark and Canonical having to abandon Upstart and that the decision literally made him break mentally.

                Because CEOs end up breaking down mentally when one piece of their many projects is replaced.

                Yeah, no.

                    The video's don't really display how the DOT in enabled or is the dot a metaphor for your press?

                      First off. I hate phoronix's forum settings. Editing time out so quickly.

                      After going to the founding article, it's quiet impressive their thoughts and direction.

                        I was little worried that they have little to no idea what they are trying to do with the edges and that they are taking to much control over edges from developers but seeing their concept videos now I'm partially convinced that they know how important it is.

                          Number of years ago I would've been all over an Ubuntu phone - the sharing and honesty of it all - but the "canonical" since then... maybe he thought it was necessity for expeciendy, but principles and spine are only lost once. And then time and time again.

                          A cathedral can feel rich but it's a lonely place. You only break hearts once.

                          Good luck with the next half of your journey, whichever way it follows.

                          I will always miss Ubuntu for what it once promised.

                            IT. WAS. A. JOKE.

                            Get a sense of humor, sometime.

                            And people who break down mentally can do so for anything. It's rarely ever a single thing, but rather one last straw pushing them past the tipping point. I don't think CEO's are naturally immune or anything.

                              Yeah, people have been known to even commit suicide because they screwed up at work or got fired. Some people just take their careers very, very seriously.
