I've used (X)ubuntu for a long time.

This paragraph: Evil, naive or interesting? And their conclusion that malware is not a bad thing.

I will never install it again on a personal machine.

Did you read that paragraph?

I don't see anything wrong with it. Mining coins isn't illegal, and won't get you banned from the Ubuntu store.

The developers point of view isn't valid, but that's their problem. I think most would agree mining on someone else's hardware without their permission is evil.

Ubuntu's point of view is misrepresenting what you app does is grounds for removal, which I think is quite reasonable.
