Whilst I hope

Whilst I hope that one of these departing people has got Unity in their pocket, I hope even more that the future of Ubuntu is secure.

They're looking for a new COO?

I'll do it. By the looks of the current release the job description is "sit around and pick your nose". For that kind of salary I'll eat my own bogies. So long as I can work from home.

and talking of security..

I was somewhat surprised to find that by varying 1 or 2 characters of a share someone elses share could be accessed. Surely this ain't right or proper?!

There going Corperate!

The writing is all over the wall guys, I've seen this before. Selling a company in this way is the results you see. When investors come in and start running the show the way they feel it should be, the first people to go is upper management. This is the end of ubuntu as we new it. Many times upper management leave on statements to peruse other things its there way of getting out without the "fired" attached to it but the truth is ubuntu has fallen by way of redhat. I am so sorry this has happened and have since left ubuntu as a long time user since 6 was released and moved to linuxmint debian xfce.
