Hi,
I think there are enough facts to suspect that at least part of the Canonical people are in fact aliens from outer space. Here's a few facts and hints:

1) Mark Shuttleworth traveled to space and then came back and started the Ubuntu initiative which soon enough became #1 (desktop) Linux distro around the world despite there being other distros for years.
2) He uses the catch word "Ubuntu" which means:
- "I am because you are" (thus basically implying "aliens and humans are the same") and
- "Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can't exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness." which is a hint about a forthcoming alien invasion to join our human race. Quotations taken from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu_%28philosophy%29).
3) The Ubuntu logo reminds of/looks like a flying saucer which is yet another reminder of alien influence and technology among the folks at Canonical.

Conclusion: Canonical is preparing our planet for an alien invasion.

Why? It's more probable that Microsoft would sabotage it.

Of course, see the facts,
on Ubuntu press ALT + F2, type gegls from outer space, press run.

:D The Ubuntu logo does resemble crop circles and a wizard once appeared in my terminal after making a mistake.

ubuntu means humanity to others.

It's a strong possibility. I was able to use Ubuntu to exercise Microsoft based tower thetans from my HP desktop. Last time I checked prior to Ubuntu only aliens had these kind of powers.

It's an open-source version of LCARS (developed by Star Fleet Command) which was inadvertently left behind on a mission from the future after the Borg invaded.

There are always SOME aliens working on anything as large as an OS. It's not like companies care whether or not you were born in the same country that they were incorporated in; that would just be silly.

I doubt that Ubuntu Linux is the #1 Linux distribution. Google Android and RedHat Enterprise Linux probably each have more deployments than Ubuntu Linux has. Of course, Google Android is mostly for phones and RedHat Enterprise Linux is mostly for servers, but they are still Linux distributions.

1) Read it again, it clearly says "(desktop) Linux".
2) I'm clearly kidding around, no need to be pedantic and don't take anything for serious.

I've noticed that the console is referred to as 'terminal'. We all know that aliens are violent creatures bent on destruction of the human race. The 'terminal' makes sense as a name since it's about terminating humans, as opposed to 'console', which is about making humans feel better.

Further, if you go to the appearance window, you will find several skins there. One or a few of them is called 'human'.

Why is it called human? Think about it - only an alien race would refer to us as 'human'. And they would lay emphasis on the 'u', just like Ferengis in Star Trek (hyoo-mahn). It's the way we refer to foxes, badgers, by the name of their species.

Finally, another bit of evidence. I went to "Disk Utility" and it says ext4 there. EXT4!! That means EXtraTerrestrials!

Kill everyone using Ubuntu and then ally with the ones using Kubuntu (which just uses the Konsole)?

This. :lolflag:

I think aliens would use some runic font, and have their minty green shields hacked by Mac OS 8, somehow convert to have a live birth instead of laying eggs, listen to lounge music while drinking blue toothpaste looking stuff, have the ability to transfer your mind through some roots into another body, and finally attempt the kidnap of animated characters for their amusement park.

As if more evidence were needed, if you search the package manager for the word "alien", you get 9 results. Far more than expected, I'm sure you'll agree.

We all know that aliens are violent creatures bent on destruction of the human race.Not all of them. You must have forgotten about the Teletubbies. :)

Right. In order to install rpm's in a deb based system, you have to have "alien" installed. That represents aliens (deb) interbreeding with the human format that was already here before they showed up (rpm). When they release a version where alien is installed by default, we can know that we're in trouble. ;)

While it's indisputably true that Mark Shuttleworth travelled into space, is there any way that any of us can be sure who (or WHAT) came back?

Yup ... I agree ... developing an OS must a piece of cake for them. Heard that they are experts ... considering their (the Aliens) technologies are far far more advanced than ours.
It realy requires a bunch of experienced aliens to develop an OS as smooth as Ubuntu.

aliens, certainly, but you've all overlooked the obvious brown clue. ubuntunians are not from "outer space". they're aliens from the earth's core.
unless you've pressed foil into the inside of the bottom of your footwear, your brain has been infiltrated! (scuba fins don't require this foil shield as long as you refrain from playing fin footsie with solid objects)

Also his business methods remind me of the movie K-Pax.
