Shuttleworth: Canonical is Not Cash-Flow Positive

eldavojohn writes "Mark Shuttleworth, the millionaire bankroller that keeps Ubuntu going strong, has revealed "Canonical is not cash-flow positive" just as version 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) of the popular Linux distribution is set to be released today. In a call, he said he "had no objection" in funding Canonical for another three to five years. He did say, however, that if they concentrated on the server edition of Ubuntu that they could be profitable in two years. I know the economy is a hurting unit right now but if you've got an extra couple of bucks lying around and you use the distribution, now might be the time to help out a distribution that has been instrumental in pushing Linux from a hobbyist's desktop & server farm to Dell's PC store."
