The people that support Ubuntu do so in multitudes of ways. And in doing so
I know that I am also addressing the entirety of the open source effort that
runs on many operating systems. The innovators that contribute of themselves
certainly in the thousands of ways that is essential to build a fine system
is truly a major social phenomenon. It is so easy for someone that is doing
their " thing " to loose sight that " their " contribution is just a tiny
part of a most complex greater construction. Where would Ubuntu be without
Debian? Without GNU? Without Linux? etcetera, etcetera!
So what is it that I am looking at in this flame? Possibly just ignorance.
Possibly some poor soul that is caught in the midst of this economic chaos
that is swallowing many during these days. Possibly agents from MS land sent
to bring the seeds of hate, and gross stupidity.
Having been specifically named, I wish to state: My purpose for being here
is to learn, share, assist in continuing to build Ubuntu and the open source
effort. I do not endorse the behavior of Cory K. nor Eddie Armstrong.
I hope this helps.
