What Ubuntu is currently doing is incidentally a good example for that. They fork off their own ecosystem, thus weakening interoperability and cooperation with other distros, which weakens the Linux ecosystem as a whole and thus ultimately themselves.
When Ubuntu first showed up in 2004, it looked as if the dream of Linux on the desktop might finally become reality. By now, it is perfectly clear to me that what they're doing to the GNU/Linux ecosystem is ultimately a disservice. It makes me feel sad and helpless.
