@popey @ted @milan Its not about "judging" or empowering users at all. Its not colored upstream cause GNOME is principled, and its *following* its principles on the Software it creates. Software Freedom is a principle of GNOME. See Allan's post:
Canonical is a multi-million, for-profit conglomerate that wants to make money.
Clearly different goals there. The problem there is that in this context its not distinguished that this is *Ubuntu* software, not *GNOME* software.
