Look Grandma! same shit as windows

But we are willing to put in drivers that are not yet open source,
because we figure it's more important to give everybody's grandma the
opportunity to actually run free software applications on a free software
environment, even if they need some proprietary drivers to get their
hardware going. That puts us squarely in the pragmatist camp rather than
the purist camp.
This way Linux becomes the worst of both worlds. An open source distro
which still has the potential weaknesses which come with these
proprietary drivers. AND your Grandma still has to learn Linux to get the
same out of it as Windows. Makes me wonder what Mark Shuttleworth is
actually contributing here.
