Ubuntu's Mark Shuttleworth apologizes for Tea Party remark and fixubuntu take-down notice


From Muktware:
That unprecedented move from Canonical (to sent take down notice) had put Canonical in the league of Apple.

All leading news sites criticized Canonical for this move and it turned out to be the worst PR disaster for Canonical.

The company has been taking quite some missteps lately which earned it a lot of negative press, whether it was Mir vs Wayland fight (where wrong info about Wayland was posted) or Canonical vs Intel fight (where Intel was bashed for reverting Mir patch), or Mark himself labeling the larger open source community as the Tea Party of Open Source.
