    Canonical has been lobbying inside UK Govt for quite some time now http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/10/18/ubuntu_windows_xp_conversions/
    From what we have been learning lately in corruption scandals in UK politics I think we all generally have a good idea what “lobbying” can mean.
    Not saying Ubuntu is not safer than Windows and so on …but in GNU/Linux it comes nowhere compared to the long history and stability of Fedora, openSUSE or Debian.
    (Is the lobbying by Canonical starting to pay back?)

    p.s forgot to mention:
    Two big players that had influence in UK Govt (lobbying) have suffered …Microsoft lobbying is part of an international investigation. David Cameron (PM) close relationship with Eric Schmidt, of Google was called in to question.
    That has pretty much opened the field a little more for the Lobbying of Canonical….
