    No problems, there will be many to fill the void, in fact Lubuntu is turning out to be a better and faster alternative to Xubuntu for those in need of light Ubuntu.

    The issue is not that he left, it's why he left. At a company like Microsoft if your boss says "Do this" you have people do it. This is both a good thing and a bad thing - it keeps people focused and priorities straight but it can stifle creativity.

    With Linux, because everyone is equal and "leaders" aren't nearly as formal (are they signing your paychecks? how much do you rely on them and vice versa? etc) you don't get that kind of structure. So you get everyone getting to say "here's this idea, listen up" but no one gets to say "Bad idea, forget it and move on."

    One is true democracy, other is autocracy. However everyone is expendable, MS ccontinues without Gates as does Apple without Jobs.
