I disagree with a lot of things done by Ubuntu but also agree with a
lot of them. I do think we should learn with the good things they did
and also with the bad ones.

Not everything told by  them is true neither false things. As usual,
we should read them carefully but they had done a good job promoting
Linux to a lot of people.
