Canonical Alienates Their Major Asset.
I’ve long lamented the fact that Linux lacks any real marketing strategy.
Of course, when a product is free of cost, there is no ROI so what’s the point?
Canonical beat the odds with Ubuntu. The fan-base became so large, so fast that Universal Awareness of Ubuntu can be credited to a simple grass-roots effort that expanded across the globe.
It wasn’t television or radio advertising.
It wasn’t billboards.
It was good old fashioned proselytizing.
Gimmee that old-time religion any day.
And if you take some time to really look back at the process, many of us would admit it was a thing of beauty…almost a force of nature.
