Ubuntu’s Death Rattle

Filed under
Ubuntu

Having just posted my thoughts on the Dell/Linux sham, it hit me… This must be the sound of Ubuntu’s death rattle.

Having failed to turn a profit year, after year, Canonical/Ubuntu has put all of it’s remaining energy into this deal: from the website re-design with the focus on Dell, to the recent video/talk marketing efforts made by Mr. Shuttleworth.

I _would_ say that all the eggs have been placed into the same basket, but if you look at the past, you quickly realize the rest of the eggs have already been broken and this is a last effort attempt.

Do the numbers:



Aww... the windows developer again...

It really doesn't surprise me that he doesn't think Ubuntu will survive. Looks like he's getting some pretty good flames in the comments.
