Did I demand that? I certainly have no standing to demand anything from Canonical. I am not a customer, I am not an employee, I'm not even a volunteer working under their management.
But I am free to ask questions, and they are free to ignore me...at their peril.
What I tried to ask is if Canonical patched Ubuntu components specifically for compatibility with the proprietary Virtual Bridges techonology. I think that's important information considering how vocal Shuttleworth has been trying to articulate a grand sweeping vision for the future of the linux desktop.
If Canonical doesn't want to share that information, I can't make them. Perhaps other people who do have standing with Canonical will be interested in asking the same question. Maybe a Debian contributor or two might find that sort of disclosure beneficial.
But I will say this. Canonical tries very hard to blur the line between its business interests and the Ubuntu community interests. Where are we headed by relying on proprietary services with closed APIs? Is that really in the community's best interest? The fact that critism of Canonical as a corporate entity is continually intepreted as an attack on the Ubuntu community..is quite..fascinating.
