    Unlike Bozo the Clown, Canonical have been successful so far. Sudden hate outburst proves that.

    First they ignore you. (2005)
    Then they ridicule you. (2010)
    Then they get angry at you. (now)
    Then you win. (2014)

    Almost any major distro uses a patched kernel, do you want to say that all of them are slowly diverging from mainline Linux? This is simply bullshit.

    Even if that would be true (it probably was at the time when Ubuntu was released in 2004), Ubuntu has simply not the manpower to abandon the Debian base, they are relying on Debian, a distribution that revolves about the community. Let Ubuntu try to diverge from Debian, it will dig its own grave with that, Ubuntu totally can not exist without Debian.

    This does not make any sense at all. Ubuntu can only submit patches upstream, but why should any upstream project care about patches that are only necessary for one distro? If they would submit patches (in the needed quality and quantity, not submitting a wall of code after secretly developing something in-house for months) that benefit the whole project I doubt that the patches would be shunned just because an Ubuntu developer wrote them. But why should they care about Ubuntu specific patches? If Canonical sees the need to divert from the cosdebase it is their own problem to manage the patches.

    I see it the other way around. Canonical needs to realize that shunning the community they rely on will only result in shunning themselves from all the projects that are developed by the community.
    Great post.

    Okay, will you please stop with this line dee? This contributes nothing.

    Linux is corporate backed certainly, but it is not owned by any one company (or development group).

    The kernel used in Ubuntu from what I understand isn't exactly the same with mainline so they are already diverging there.

    Debian as it is is not good enough for the user because if it was there would have been no need for Ubuntu.

    The number of Ubuntu specific patches will only increase and I hope that the community will not shun them just to make their life harder.

    They need to realize that shunning them will only result in shunning themselves from the desktop of the common user that might try Ubuntu.

    Uhh nope. Linux is free software, it's not owned by anyone. Ever heard of GPL?

    Why are you not using a mac? You seem like someone who'd be happier using a macintosh. It's got everything you desire - the cult of personality, the cool hipster factor, corporate branding... why are you using free software if you don't like the freedom?

    LOL visit a doctor too. Redhat, oracle, ibm, intel, amd,nvidia,trolltech, sun, etc. those companies did their best to get linux where it is now. What, u think big linux projects are created by "community"? And [email protected] never created anything major. Unity just gnome-shells fork + qt mix. They are now developing calendar and calculator, awesome news for linux. "AWESOME" company making linux better by developing calendar and calculator!!!!!!! L OOOOOOOO L

    Just one question. Does Shuttleworth's cock taste salty or sour?

    I can't comprehend these ubuntu-fanbois who keep asserting that community-work=bad, corporations=good. If you love corporations, suitmen and their marketing-speak, why use Linux at all? Why not stick to microsoft or apple? There you have all the corporate drones writing "code that works". You don't care about code being open or closed, so what reason do you have for using Linux?

    The Community is mostly companies, so your point does not make any sense.
