I would say that it is moving as a rather unexpectedly quick pace. UL is, as I have commented before, most likely a waste of effort and manpower. The idea isn't bad but Progeny, Linspire and now Ubuntu are more likely to actually come up with something real and sustainable. Bruce is a good guy and all but he's (in)famous for starting projects then having them grind to a halt as he starts new ones.

But this is relatively off-topic. Ubuntu Linux could be a great boon for the open source world and Linux. Bruce would be good to fold UL into it, IMNSHO.
