Parent article: Whither UserLinux?
Bruce Perens was quoted as saying:
Ubuntu ... may be more of a rich man's hobby project than a company.
That statement seems foolishly gratuitous, if Bruce actually made it,
given the current state of UserLinux. Ubuntu has actually released (two
on-time releases, with another due out in a month), and has tens of
thousands of users, and a plan to support them (via revenue generated from
the Launchpad support platform).
I'll take a "rich man's hobby", with real releases, a real business plan,
a real community, and real support, over a "poor man's folly", with no release, no revenue, no community, and no support, any day.
