I believe it is only supported by Canonical, not developed by them
although they do pay some developers.  In fact, aren't a lot of
Debian's developers also Ubuntu devs?  I feel similarly about corporate
endeavors generally but I really think Ubuntu is on a good track with
its, "always free," and, "humanity toward others," philosophies. Is
Libranet a corporate Linux? I understood it to be a father and son
operation. Libra Computer Systems Ltd.  Limited liability company or
corporate? It's Canadian so I don't know.
