Canonical denies move towards open core
Canonical, the company behind the Ubuntu GNU/Linux distribution, has reiterated its decision not to create a firm based on open core products.
An open core model is one in which free or open source software is sold along with proprietary add-ons.
The assertion came in response to queries by iTWire, occasioned by accusations levelled at the company by two Linux kernel developers.
Jonathan Corbet, a senior kernel developer and editor of Linux Weekly News, accused Canonical of splitting the Linux desktop by creating its own display server, Mir.
