 Canonical is not Ubuntu. Canonical is only a

Ubuntu community uses for the project.
What happen if some big company starts supporting Ubuntu project? What
can be stand of Canonical in that situation. Its very nice that
Canonical is supporting project. I am wondering its still some control
factor somewhere which is not inviting more contributor as it should
 If at all, Canonical decides not to support Ubuntu
then am sure that
a major portion of the contributing community will make an effort to
create resources and run the project. Indeed it will shake us to the
roots, but we will try our best not to fall.
I am sure any good opensource project will run without support of any
particular company as it is. Agree.
The question to Canonical was Linux Kernel Contribution from its
kernel developers. See,
