Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth featured in the New York Times

The New York Times has an interesting piece on Mark Shuttleworth. The article explores Canonical's goals and Ubuntu's desire to become a main competitor to windows. The interesting facts about Ubuntu for me are Canonical's profitable position and its alterier purpose as part of Shuttleworth's legacy that he aims to really change lives with.

While I do not use Ubuntu in my day-to-day computing I do have a lot of respect for what Mark is trying to achieve and by putting his money where his mouth is through starting Canonical and achiving all the things that Ubuntu has done is quite a feat for someone who is already beyond successful in the for-profit sector of providing SSL certificates.
