      Linux has always been a sinking ship...it never had any marketshare. Lets' face it, anything not Ubuntu is ten years behind. Without Unity I might still be on Windows.

          Linux is extremely successful, perhaps you mean the application of it for traditional desktop purposes. If it weren't for Windows heck even I might be still on Windows.

            Mark had originally stepped down from being the CEO to focus on product design, partnerships, customers, and other areas.
            How that worked out? I think the reason of his return will be to drive the sell of the company. No problem with that however, it is his own creation after all.

              The success stories of Yahoo, IBM, AMD and now Canonical are perfect proof that we need even more quotas for women in every field, especially in IT, because equality or something.

                You forgot HP.

                In July 1999, HP appointed Carly Fiorina as CEO, the first female CEO of a company in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Fiorina served as CEO during the technology downturn of the early 2000s. During her tenure, the market value of HP halved and the company cut jobs heavily. The HP Board of Directors asked Fiorina to step down in 2005, and she resigned on February 9, 2005.

                    While I don't want to feed the troll, which this post absolutely is, I do have some perspective here, in that I have worked for both Canonical and HP, under the leadership of Jane Silber and Meg Whitman, respectively.

                    Jane. Is. Awesome. She's a fantastic CEO and a great person. She's one of the many people I miss from Canonical. Nothing to do with her being a woman.

                    Meg... I've never met her, so I do not know what she is like as a person, but I did not feel she was a good CEO. Nothing to do with her being a woman.
