"Going from 12 million to 200 million in a span of four years
means that Ubuntu cannot be content with just being the most
popular Linux distribution. Canonical have to get Ubuntu out there
and noticed by the majority of the people who uses Mac and Windows
and make them switch side.
"The idea of freedom and open-source is clearly not enough to
make users switch over to Linux from Windows and Mac. Polished and
useful software that takes care of user experience is what will
draw users. That will mean development with users in mind -
something that Canonical has been doing with Ubuntu."
