I really do not have much to say about this topic, but one point does 
come to mind.  When I first heard about Ubuntu, in the breezy badger 
days I didn't think it would pan out to much, because it felt like linux 
met religion.  In fact it was just the opposite, not religion, 
community.  Anyway there should be a distinction between religion and 
state, same applies to linux.  My operating system don't come to church 
with me every Sunday.....

But then again that is just an opinion.  :)
