Ever wondered how the business-world looks at Ubuntu?
Our pals at Canonical, including Mark Shuttleworth and Jane Silber, have been speaking to Forbes (http://www.forbes.com/technology/2006/09/05/linux-ubuntu-opensource_cz_mr_0906shuttleworth.html), the American business magazine. You probably won’t learn anything all that new about the distro, but there are some interesting snippets, such as:

Shuttleworth tried out in early 2005 for the Donald Trump role on a South African version of The Apprentice (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Apprentice).
Okay, I admit it, the article is interesting in its own right, but that bit about Mark and The Apprentice is what makes it Fridge-worthy. Unfortunately for us, the show’s producers chose Tokyo Sexwale (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tokyo_Sexwale) instead.
