Conflicting goals create tension in communities

Matthew Garrett expressed frustration with Debian recently, in a blog post that’s become rather famous. I’m of the opinion that Ubuntu could not exist without Debian.

Really Free Software

Mark Shuttleworth is rich enough to cause some havoc in the feel-good Linux community.
