Obviously that query needs to go to Tom; Canonical can hardly make a
practice of commenting on details of employment negotiations.

Anyhow, recent posts and long experience make it pretty clear that Tom's
goals, philosophy of engineering, approach to managing a project and to
interacting with people are very different to those of Canonical
(regardless of which you may prefer).  It's hard to imagine Tom and
Canonical would have been a good fit.

A dilemma:

1- everybody says the same thing because it's the party line

2- everybody says the same thing because it's actually true
