I do not agree with the statement that Mark's in the business for "the money". Any informed user should know that it costs thousands of dollars (rands in this case), if not millions, to create and maintain a distribution such as Ubuntu. I think that the whole Artwork issue should be a big embarrassment to the Art Team, as I trust Mark's judgment, so if he doesn't agree with it, I trust that it wasn't fit for the Ubuntu image.

Another thing: if Mark was in the business for "the money", he could easily have created a commercial clone of Ubuntu, such as Mandriva did...
