Talk about a spectacular failure.
Ubuntu Edge, the innovative Linux-based smartphone-plus-PC, just passed $10 million on crowdfunding site Indiegogo. Too bad the team set their goal at $32 million — and there’s just six days to go.
Richard Stallman, the grand old man of open source software and president of the Free Software Foundation, is calling Canonical’s Ubuntu Linux “spyware” and calling on the open source community to uninstall the software, shun the company, and “give Canonical whatever rebuff is needed to make it stop.”
Soon Ubuntu Linux won’t just be a desktop OS for Linux nerds.
