Ubuntu is not Linux, it's a Cola!
This really took me by surprise!! Ubuntu is not just a Linux distribution! It is also a Cola!!!
Faitrade foundation, a charity organization based from U.K, makes and sells a product called Ubuntu Cola. Also, there is a company called Ubuntu Trading Company Ltd.
But this is a noble attempt by Fairtrade to support the farmers of Malawi and Zambia. Here's their mission statement:
"Our idea is to create a trading company based on the concept of Ubuntu - each person participates so that each benefits. We want to make fairtrade accessible to more people: our delicious refreshing drinks will enable more people to participate in the fairtrade movement and deliver a real return to the African communities where the ingredients are grown."
Ubuntu - Humanity or fellow feeling; kindness. In other words, "I am what I am because of who we all are."
