Bug #1

Non-free software is holding back innovation in the IT industry, restricting access to IT to a small part of the world’s population and limiting the ability of software developers to reach their full potential, globally. This bug is widely evident in the PC industry.

you can find more about this bug from launchpad and this bug contain this message.

Microsoft has a majority market share in the new desktop PC marketplace.
This is a bug, which Ubuntu is designed to fix.

Non-free software is holding back innovation in the IT industry, restricting access to IT to a small part of the world's population and limiting the ability of software developers to reach their full potential, globally. This bug is widely evident in the PC industry.

Steps to repeat:

1. Visit a local PC store.

What happens:
2. Observe that a majority of PCs for sale have non-free software pre-installed.
3. Observe very few PCs with Ubuntu and free software pre-installed.

What should happen:
1. A majority of the PCs for sale should include only free software like Ubuntu.
2. Ubuntu should be marketed in a way such that its amazing features and benefits would be apparent and known by all.
3. The system shall become more and more user friendly as time passes.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Canonical's main purpose is fix this bug. that's why they created a operating system like this. currently ubuntu did not fixed yet. but it is in progress and marked as critical in Importance. it says someday if it fixed in ubuntu which represents majority of PC s in the world. it is the ultimate goal of ubuntu which can build a better freedom.
