The ubuntu community is one of the most enjoyable I’ve ever been a part of, it has a much more diverse set of people and ideas than other development communities, but retains a strict sense of community and togetherness.
I think this has a lot to do with the ideals behind the community, it doesn’t feel disingenuous like some commercially engineered communities. I think is a reflection of the separation between Ubuntu development and commercial interests (Canonical) on the developers side.
You never get Canonical Support services trying to interfere with the Ubuntu Forums and their no replies team. For a start it’d be a waste of time, they serve very different markets and needs.
