It seems most people rather have proprietary software on phones than open-but-not-perfect stuff. I can't explain the hostility to things like this in any other way.
I might be an openSUSE guy in many ways but I am very happy with this, applaud Canonicals move and hope they are successful. If we get a proper, reasonably open linux desktop on millions of systems, WTF are we doing if we go and bash on the company doing it just because they're not doing it EXACTLY how we want it?!?
