If this P&D budget was splitted on long-term-10-years-go-to-market products and really useful and fast increments on current Microsoft products, maybe Microsoft could be the current Google. Or Apple ;)

Great point! 10gen is growing really really fast (and receiving a lot of funding to sustain that). The newly-released Education channel is great.

For sure, MongoDB was not production-ready before 2.0 version but I really think 10gen is doing a really great job on it. A lot could (and will be) improved, lets keep going.

MongoDB stills young and received a ton of attention for its promise. And is really unfair trying to compare it with 20+ years technologies.

MongoDB users stills pay the price to be an early adopter and I'm confident we are doing a great deal and learn a lot.

i don't see canonical and google working too closely together on this, as google has a competing OS that they're trying to push: chrome. and now with the introduction of chrome for android, there's no reason why your cell phone couldn't turn into a chromebox when it gets plugged into a similar dock.

Nowdays, open source repos providers should be a mix of community engagement initiative and real business. Like GitHub and BitBucket.
