A report from pgCon 2013
Wrong, in a capitalist society being really rich (Mark seems to be a billionaire) can generate way more profits than he spends on Ubuntu .. I don't think Mark got any "poorer" in the last 8 years ..
Although you could say that such a society is doomed to fail, were you implying that?

All societies are doomed to fail. I highly doubt that Jon intended to interrupt an article for such a mundane observation.
(If you were attempting to start a political fight, I ask that you go do it in some other community. This site covers technical, legal and human issues related to Linux and free software -- not the morality of investment.)

I have read many times that Mark doesn't want to fund Ubuntu forever. He might be dreaming that it would be cool if it would fund itself, but he has no kids and if he must he will probably give an Ubuntu foundation more money than it needs to work for a long time.
