Is it such a bad thing if Ubuntu is aiming to be accessible outside of the usual Linux audience, and trying to help those people contribute something back? I think that at least one of the things that "bonds" the more traditional audience to Linux is the feeling that they are "part of it" and one of the myriad small forces driving its evolution. Why should less technical people not be able to feel the same? It would be nice though if Canonical found more effective ways of getting them involved in the bug process, like say more reproducing and less marking as invalid. I'm sure that they could be a massive benefit to the FOSS community.
