You are right, it is not Ubuntu fault, but end users don't care about
it. For most of them, it is all "Linux". If you bundle an app. with
the OS, this app. becomes part of the OS (at least from the end user
perspective). Windows users knows that a random app. downloaded from
the net has an inconsistent GUI, it is not MS fault. But if the bad
written app. is the "Calculator" or any app. that comes bundled with
Windows, they will associate it with the Windows OS. Same with Linux.
