I said a few things wrong, let’s move on

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

A couple of days ago I posted an article which, believe it or not, had a fundamental message buried somewhere amongst the stereotyping, name-calling trollop. It was a mistake on my behalf to use such wording and I admit I cocked up big time. 

Ubuntu is a pretty diverse place full of loads of different people working together on something that they enjoy and that should be respected. I think most of us agree that Ubuntu won’t become mainstream based on principles alone, and recently we’ve seen a lot of work go into it to make sure that the product is as good as it can be for mainstream consumption. Of course, there is always room for improvement and everyone in downstream, upstream and even the FSF help in their own way.

So, I apologize for my crass wording and hope that everyone affected doesn’t take too much of it to heart – keep doing great work on open source software and I’ll see you on the other side!
