What is this FUD about Mark Shuttleworth is evil or a bad person?
The guy prior to Ubuntu contributed to Debian. The stuff that is made for Ubuntu is free software code, its not proprietary as in Linspire, etc. In space he participated in AIDS and genome research. He formed Shuttleworth Foundation which is a non-profit organisation. He funds open source projects.
He is a big time sponsor for KDE.
And he also manages to make money of Linux, and is one of the people who are pushing Linux forward and spreading it the most!
The guy is a huge resource for the Linux and open source software community!
