This is probably the same user, who in IRC on freenode in
#ubuntu-offtopic, tried to start a discussion on it and we showed him
the reasons why no one cares unless rights were infringed upon. And
unless this guy has a lot more money and a lot of people already
deluded into thinking he did it himself, it's crumbs to Mark
Shuttleworth's cookie. Other than that, I personally don't give a damn
about his little fantasy, as there are hundreds of other such attempts
at outdoing Ubuntu and Debian amongst the other major distros.
