«In following Apples model of unilaterally deciding how features will be designed, Canonical is making what I believe is a crucial mistake. Canonical is writing free software in a code-only sense; while they respect the technical requirements of software freedom, they do not respect the culture of the free software community. Free software is not only about sharing your code, it is also about collaboration. Healthy free software projects encourage collaboration from the very beginning and in all stages of the process and that includes the design process. The community should be involved from the very conception of an idea to the actual execution in code and beyond.»
Problemas que afronta el software libre cuando aleja la mirada de lo que la comunidad pide y necesita. La autarquía disipa el aporte de la comunidad (en el límite, disipa a la comunidad misma).
