Shuttleworth is honest about his advocacy.  None of the false "advocates" in
COLA would say what he does:

  Question:
    -----
    What do you see as the main obstacles holding back the
    success of the Linux desktop?
    -----
  Shuttleworth:
    -----
    I think we don't yet deliver a good enough user experience. I
    think we deliver a user experience for people that have a
    reason to want to be on the Linux platform, either because of
    price or because of freedom. If that was your primary reason,
    Linux is the right answer.
    
    But if you are somebody who is not too concerned about price,
    who is not too concerned about freedom, I don't think we can
    say the Linux desktop offers the very best experience. And
    that's something we have to change, that's something I'm
    committed to work on, focusing increasing amounts of
    resources of Canonical on figuring out on how we actually
    move the desktop experience forward to compete with Mac OS X.

Are you really that stupid, or are you just a bald-faced liar?

After all, we all have a rough idea of the "huge" percentage of the
populace which reads forums such as this.  And many who would read
them would agree with those that you call "crazies".

Imagine, though, if most Linux users spread the false "advocate" FUD you and
others in COLA spread.

It would kill desktop Linux.  Bring it down to 1%.

Oh.

I am in middle of testing it myself. And if I decide to move to Mint
from OpenSUSE I will enroll as monthly donor for project, which I urge
everyone who start using Mint as their main distro. Project can not
continue without financial support - me thinks.

   This is just a stupid Lemming lie.

   The primary reason that people use Linux is that it isn't WinDOS.

   It doesn't get infected with viruses. It doesn't crash. It doesn't freeze
when doing simple things and make the rest of the desktop useless.

   The fact that the OS is gratis is just a bonus.

    This is a silly argument. If it weren't a free copy of Linux then it
would be a free copy of Windows. The cost aspect really isn't an issue.

    Although mandatory license management is an issue. There's simply less
bother when you are using a product that is gratis and thus not subjct to
stupid license enforcement shenanigans. You can move a copy from machine to
machine without a lot of bother. You can blow it away completely and start
from scratch on the same machine without needing to worry if your license
will get revalidated.

    It's not the "cost". It's the bother.

Most Linux desktop users have a Windows license for their machines as
well, because it is difficult to buy a machine without one.  If you want
a PC without Windows, you usually have to build it yourself - and that
is normally more expensive than a pre-build one.

People run Linux on desktops because they /choose/ to - not to save money.

People may run Open Office rather than MS Office to save money, and
similarly with other programs.  And the lack of cost certainly makes it
easier to try out Linux.  But Linux users have usually already paid for
a Windows license for the machine (even if they never use it).

In my household, there are two laptops and two desktops.  They all came
with Windows licenses, but none of them have Windows installed (except
on a couple of virtual machines).

I say they do and there is nothing you can do about it either. If you're
