...until Canonical can actually make a profit...
I don't suppose that, with enough money to buy a $20 million joyride to the International Space Station, Mark Shuttleworth and his company are in imminent danger of running out of money anytime soon1. Not that I don't admire what he's doing for Linux--I do appreciate his Linux advocacy efforts with Canonical and Ubuntu.
1 (Slightly off-topic) I'm reminded of a quote from Orson Welles' movie Citizen Kane:
I did lose a million dollars last year. I expect to lose a million dollars this year. I expect to lose a million dollars next year. You know, Mr. Thatcher, at the rate of a million dollars a year, I'll have to close this place in... 60 years!
