Canonical developing free software...rrriiiiight"
Yea. Its called Ubuntu, and the whole thing is free as per the mission statement. Canonical sponsors alot of free software projects. I am no big Corporate fanboi, trust me on this one, yet they have earned my respect (and ALOT of other folks) for their work in FOSS. Ubuntu is (and always will be) the vastly superior choice when it comes to a simple, yet innovative FOSS desktop. Certainly a much better choice than Fedora ever would be, as it is nothing more than the pet project of Red Hat where they throw barely tested/still in development crap on the community to fix for them, aka "Fedora 9". I hope Novell learns from this and does not release SUSE 11 in the way Fedora just did. From what I have seen thus far from thier beta's, SUSE 11 is going to be the big winner this year for the best Linux Desktop, although Ubuntu 8.04 will be VERY hard to beat.
