Re:Ubuntu .... with or without commercials?

"Open Source" was not dropped on the door-step by a stork - it is the collective work of an open source community. One such community is the Debian community. When people like Shuttleworth are going to hijack this work for personal monetary benefit without giving back anything to the community with phrases like "for humanity" it makes it real sick.
In biology such beings which feed on other living beings are called parasites. At least the bacteria and viruses of the world don't advertise that they do what they do for the good of the humanity!
What really is required is symbiosis.
