Ubuntu claims to have fixed Microsoft
Ubuntu has finally fixed a bug which Mark Shuttleworth claimed blighted the operating system from the first day.
The first bug on Launchpad was created by Mark Shuttleworth in August 2004 and it claimed that Ubuntu's number one bug was that "Microsoft has a majority market share".
Shuttleworth said that the way to reproduce the bug was to visit a local PC store and buy a machine without any proprietary software.
However, Shuttleworth has now closed the bug - saying that the PC is a broader proposition than it was in 2004: phones, tablets, wearables and other devices are all part of the mix for our digital lives.
He added that from a competitive perspective, the broader market has healthy competition, with IOS and Android representing a meaningful share.
Shuttleworth wrote it's important to recognise that the shift has taken place. So from Ubuntu's perspective, this bug is now closed.
Philosophically there are some slight problems with this statement. When he wrote bug one, he was claiming that the reason that Ubuntu was not going anywhere was because of Microsoft. Now it turns out that even without Microsoft, Ubuntu is not going anywhere.
