As to the people complaining about Michael posting an article about Shuttleworth's blog (and even mostly leaving it to the man's own words), will you please grow slightly thicker skin? Come on, this is Michael Larabel for christs sake! He bashes everything! I mean, if anyone has gotten a really harsh mouthful from him over the past year it would be LGP, but I do not see you guys rising to their defence.
Your reaction actually suggest that the people bashing Ubuntu might actually be on to something, and that they are hitting a nerve. Does not sound encouraging for them.
