being open source and being a good project are very different. For
example when red hat has to release their kernel patches they just
send a giant crappy tarball out and say "here we released it". Ubuntu
is the same way. Unity does not work well with others, doesnt work on
most distros, has weird patches required for low level libraries, is
rather hackey... the source is available, but it doesnt mean its

just because its open source doesnt mean its a good project
