No need to make your replies personal to me. Apart from anything else,
such simplistic remarks are pretty unhelpful - No, I'm not a businessman,
but Mark and others who developed the Canonical business model have been
pretty successful in multiple business projects. You're welcome to your
opinion, and that's respected, so there is no need to add things like that
to make it seem like your opinion is hard fact, when it's not.

A side note: I was happy to kick off the discussion, and I'll be following
it with interest, but by posting to sounder I didn't mean "please send me
a copy of any responses to this thread in my inbox".

I'll read the list, no need to cc: me. For more details, see
