That's a trend that has been becoming increasingly obvious.

I look at Ubuntu the same way I look at Android -- a very popular Linux fork going their own way. They already have their own desktop (Unity), largely out-of-tree Gnome (patched to hell), their own init system (upstart), their own Apple store, and now their own SDK.

Ubuntu is not Linux anymore, get over it.
