Linux, Open Source, and Tech Journalism

Canonical isn’t exactly carrying any real load outside of what it produces for itself. Canonical has never sponsored or even contributed heavily to a major upstream project that’s consumed by the rest of the community that I can think of.

But how much do they actually contribute to those projects? Fantastically little.

It's a bit early to suggest that there's One True Approach to providing services to your business. As you might guess, I'm a big fan of cloud computing and using cloud services when it's appropriate. However, I also respect a conservative approach to adopting new technology and models of computing.
