Is this real? (http://www.arsgeek.com/?p=1658)

I found this article through Digg. Are Mark and Canonical really starting this project up?

The real question here is, if it was true then would you eat it?

If they're sugar coated, I'd buy 'em....

I wrote it as a joke, but really they do "beta testing" on food. My brother use to do it. He stopped because he stared to get disappointed when the products came out and the ones (flavor options) he liked were not picked. For example, he ate about 6 bowls of that Oreo cereal before it came out. He loved one of the options, saying it really tasted like eating Oreoes dunked in milk. When they released the product to the masses they chose one that he thought (during testing and at home) was too waxy. Too may times that happened and he desided it was a waste of his time.

The funny thing... it's just a matter of time before someone takes a box of that ceral brand and puts a Ubuntos label on it!
