Being serious for a second though, I am sorry you feel I am an enemy of Free Software. I have devoted my life to furthering Free Software across various projects, but the key point here is that there is room for everyone. If you have ethical issues with Ubuntu, there are plenty of other distros available. What doesn't help anyone is this personalized and aggressive tone and language; let's not forget we are all people. Also, as a side note, I barely know Lefty and haven't seen him for probably four years, and even then it was a five minute chat at GUADEC. You are seeing conspiracy and subterfuge where none exists.

I community didn't die; we focused on new areas and saw significant growth such as in app developers and cloud. Some parts of our traditional community has indeed seen some lower participation as we have focused on these new areas that needed spinning up. I don't believe it is fair to characterize this as the overall community dying though.
