Why Shakira has more fans than Ubuntu? Someone pays Shakira to write a song for Ubuntu. Oh, wait, Shakira or RMS (*1) in vocals? ;)
Waka Waka means (do it) (*2), Ubuntu means (I am what I am because of who we all are)(*3). Canonical’s new logo should be, “Ubuntu, just Waka Waka” and get Kobe to make the commercial ;)
Seriously, they need to change their logos. It was the only original thing they created from scratch, and they messed up with it :|
Mark, Steve Jobs and Moses (*10) had something in common. They all had a vision. Moses was the only one who didn’t dream of a television :)
After his trip in space, Mark said: “An experience like that changes your perspective on life and on the world.…” (*6)
Mark spent $20m (*7) to travel into space. What a waste! If I had that money, I would travel into space ;)
There are just 3 types of Companies that can still operate with damages. Governmental Services, money launders “fronts” and Canonical. A yes, Canonical isn’t Ltd, is just a Non-Profit Organization :)
From Economist Frond page.
What is talking about? European, USA or Canonical’s Economics?
International Monetary Fund (IMF) after saving many countries (LOL), it is here to save Canonical also :)
Nah, Canonical doesn’t need IMF, because Mark Shuttleworth is for Canonical what Nasser Al-Khelaifi is for Paris St-Germain FC. (*4)
The primary goal for every company isn’t to maximized profit, but to make offices in tax heaven paradises.
The worst move of Canonical was to open offices in Isle of Man (*5). They have nothing to hide from tax offices, plus they have to pay the lawyer there every month ;)
Someone please put Canonical in Stoke Market. I love high risk gambling :)
Ubuntu users numbers won’t get increased with marketing, but from birth rates. In 2100 earth will have 16b population (*8) and Ubuntu 640m users. That’s still 4% :)
Canonical should promote the love, rather tech specifications in their campaigns. Besides “love one another” is the greatest commandment in all religions (*9) ..God saves the Canonical ;)
Dear all Distribution Authors, please stop bringing software fragmentation into Linux Desktop. Just make an Ubuntu spin ;)
Ubuntu Desktop is really awesome with HUD, USC and Voice Recognition. You can say “Software Center, File Open, Exit, Software Center, File Open, Exit…..Software Center, File Open, Exit” all day long..
I think Ubuntu Mobile OS will have great success. The same I was thinking about Maemo.
Ok, Maemo failed because they were new-comers in mobile market. What was their name? Nokia?
Canonical has a big experience in mobile software. They already have Copyrights Agreements for their desktop. They just need to reserve some patents and they are mobile-ready ;)
Besides Canonical have skills, they have created Unity. The guys in Firefox OS are just creating what we call Internet.. Pff, amateurs!
Mobile OS development is easier than Desktop’s. You don’t need to connect a Printer to your mobile, plus you don’t need to compete Microsoft. You just have to take over Google, Samsung etc… Just a walk in the park ;)
Android actually isn’t a competitor to Ubuntu Mobile. Ubuntu is an Android after all. Google hides Linux, Canonical hides Android, fair enough ;)
Google employees are using Ubuntu in their work. From October they will also use Ubuntu Mobiles, to have perfect integration with their desktops. They just can’t wait for it!
No matter what happens Mark will be a winner. If Canonical succeed in mobile market, Mark will be a successful businessman. If they fail, Mark will be always remembered as the greatest Open Source philanthropist ;)

Putting the fun aside, Ubuntu Mobile seems quite good, and it has a good chance. Besides, everyone has got tired with Android Android Android. You can’t tell if they will make it, but you wouldn’t never know if you don’t try. So good luck Canonical!
