Accept Bitcoin across the Ubuntu Universe

This petition had 15 supporters

With Canonical / Ubuntu / Mark Shuttleworth incorporating bitcoins across the Ubuntu universe, it will revolutionize computing and the way business is done.

Both the Ubuntu donation page and Ubuntu Shop could begin to accept bitcoins. They currently do not. could accept bitcoins for bounties on questions. The Ubuntu Software Center could accept bitcoins for software sold and pay developers in BTC. Ubuntu could also save a small percentage from moving away from VISA and Paypal and the other forms of acceptable payments. If Ubuntu is doing $100 million a year in sales (mostly from support) it could easily save $2 or 3 million which could go towards development and expansion of the Ubuntu community and have a huge impact. Ubuntu could also accept BTC as payment for music in UbuntuOne. Better yet, the big crowd funding campaign earlier this year for the Ubutnu Phone could have accepted bitcoins and propelled the campaign way past its funding point.

I am asking Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu linux, to begin the motions to accept bitcoins across the entire Ubuntu universe.
