I was pretty surprised by the move, but I doubt it'll change much.

Why are so many focusing on cloud computing and online services these days? It will always be a mini segment within a small niche, focusing on bringing ubuntu more into the mainstream will benefit the company more. Cloud computing makes headlines at the moment but few use it.

There's nothing free about it. In the "cloud", you can't touch the code. Even if it comes at no cost, I can't see the advantages versus a locally stored file. People on the move can learn the miracle technique of "uploading".


Shuttleworth won't be missed (then again, sod Ubuntu). The man simply doesn't get free software and from his mailing list contributions he seems like a total dick. But the latter is just my opinion.


Right, pet peeve time, I'll put it in a small font!

I don't use Ubuntu so I'm not an expert, but it comes without any GNU software whatsoever?! Amazing!

Companies like the cloud because it lets them control your information. Which means they can hold it hostage and charge absolutely silly fees. Just like cell phone providers.
