Re: Marks Shuttleworth's message to all Ubuntu haters.
I see a lot of potential problems like this listed around various Linux enthusiast sites, lots of technical things that might/should/probably will/maybe not cause issues for Ubuntu now it's chosen a different direction. But surely they must have thought and considered all these eventualities before pushing this button? I just can't imagine for a moment that they blindly decided to forge their own way, and never considered X possibility or Y outcome.

But I am curious to see how Ubuntu handles these issues that people highlight, and whether or not it can successfully define a place for itself in this way.
