It seems that the bug report was misinterpreted. It clearly states in the description that it's about PCs, and that once it's fixed, it should be possible to buy a completely free software PC in any shop. That hasn't happened yet. I'd say that those affected by the bug should reopen it
This bug on openSUSE is apparently in progress. Some other projects have it marked as invalid, some as confirmed, some are still marking it as new. Pretty funny
Closed UPSTREAM ;-)

But what the matter with U?
It sounds like a bug report: no aliens on our planet.
was closed with a reason: they come themselves.
LOL, good sarcasm! Is microsoft not nr 1 on desktop? It is! So closing this bug is essentially declaration of defeat, defeat means submitting to enemy.

You say "Good things to come" for every closed source nvidia release and also never miss a chance to crap about opensource drivers! What a joke! What a joke!!
You should complain to nvidia for not providing viable/sane/OSS drivers for their crappy hardware.

These days I sadly find less and less reasons to cheer for Ubuntu.
Mark and Canonical should take a lesson from history.
Look at what happened to the companies who buddied up with Microsoft. Novell, SCO, Xandros, Linspire... All in the recycle bin. Nokia might follow the same path. Red Hat, on the other hand, didn't bend its knees and is prospering. Google is in no bad shape as well.
Now to which group does Canonical want to belong?
Yeah, I don't think Canonical cares about the desktop anymore, they're focusing on phones and tablets now.

Unfortunately I see their phone as being in a similar market position as the desktop. There are bigger players and much better products. I think it's going to be a "for fans only" kind of phone.
I think i agree - although they won't necessarily just shut down. But if the mobile stuff doesn't pan out I definitely see Shuttleworth trying to sell the company, and who knows what the new owners would focus on. Maybe keep working on mobile, or maybe somebody out there would try to turn it back towards making desktop linux profitable. Dismantling the entire company is 1 possibility.
