"My writing compadre Bruce Byfield wrote that while
"Ubuntu first appeared, the free and open source software (FOSS)
community was delighted. But, "In 2011, that honeymoon is long
past. Although Ubuntu remains the dominant distro, criticisms of
its relationship with the rest of FOSS seem to be coming every
other month." To which, I can only reply, "So what else is new?"
"Ubuntu started as a Debian fork almost seven years ago and I
can still find Debian developers who are ticked off about it to
this very day. Since then, as Byfield notes, Ubuntu, and its parent
company Canonical has gotten into hot-water with one party after
the other in open-source circles."
