If you're counting me in those 3, I would like to clarify something.
As everyone knows, I left Canonical a number of years ago. I quit,
after a number of disagreements (some public, but many more private)
with some of the senior staff, because of some very unfortunate
behaviour by my management at Canonical. Obviously this is not the
kind of thing one makes a lot of noise about, but much of what
happened was no fun for me at all and I'm certainly no Canonical
For what it's worth, I have complete confidence in Steve and Colin.
(I have known Colin for a very long time as a friend, from well before
either of us got involved with Canonical.)
