Register says Ubuntu goes mainstream
Our friends at the UK’s premier third-rate IT blog, The Register, have a new interview up with Benevolent Dictator Mark Shuttleworth branding him a “millionaire cosmonaut and self-funded Linux guru” and talking about taking Ubuntu to the mainstream.
Mark reveals that Canonical is using about $10m/year on building and promoting Ubuntu, all currently coming from Mark’s personal wallet. We thought we’d also take the Google Trends link that measures the number of searches on a particular topic and compare Ubuntu to Red Hat, Suse and even Microsoft’s Vista. We think you’ll enjoy the results!
