As a result of an effort to publicise a sale, Canonical, the company behind the widely used Linux distribution Ubuntu, has received criticism. According to a report by TechRadar Pro from last week,
Canonical is now providing free access to the enterprise-focused edition of Ubuntu for up to five workstations.
The corporation is promoting the plan by sending a notice to all users who upgrade their operating system using the command line.
Nonetheless, there is a vocal minority of Ubuntu users who do not approve of what they see as an unwelcome imposition.
Ubuntu users have taken to Reddit and the Canonical site to complain about the offending message, which promotes a free service.
Everyone who has complained about the command line message agrees that it is annoying and may be a violation of the unspoken agreement between Canonical and its users.
