Open Ballot: is Canonical good for free software?
Love them or hate them, the folks behind Ubuntu have changed the Linux landscape. Many users have discovered Linux thanks to Canonical's marketing efforts and free CD programmes, but recently we've see a lot of controversy such as the Banshee affair and spat with the Gnome team.
On the other hand, Canonical would argue that it's trying hard to give back to the community, for instance with the new DEX project. We want your opinions for our upcoming podcast: do you think, on the whole, that Canonical is a good or bad force for free software and Linux?
Let us know in the comments, and give yourself a proper name too. There's no fun in a flamewar if everyone is just Anonymous Penguin.
