"Today, I'm going to complain again though I hope you, and maybe
someone at Ubuntu, will find some of what I have to say useful.
After all, I believe that Ubuntu, and Canonical, produce a great
product and do great things for Linux, FOSS, and the community.
Besides, totay's tech trials do have a happy ending. Still, even
great products can be improved upon, and I don't believe I'm here
to be a cheerleader (at least I don't think so). First though, I
have to address the issue of sex, or more accurately, sexism.
"Much has been made of Mark Shuttleworth's keynote speech at
Linuxcon as to whether his speech was sexist, demeaning to women,
and whether it was a reflection of the man. Last week, I said Mark
was a cool billionaire based on my own personal definition of 'cool
billionaire'. Right now, Cirque du Soleil founder (and billionaire)
Guy Laliberté is on board the International Space Station
fulfilling one of my of my great personal dreams -- ah, to be that
rich! If Guy Laliberté also happens to like Linux/FOSS, he's
definitely cool in my books."
