I agree, about switching to another Linux (or BSD) distro.

But while Fedora (Ubuntu or [Open]SUSE or Mint, etc.) have a lot of 
volunteers, the platform is still controlled by a corporation.

What makes you think that they aren't already doing this, or won't soon 
adopt Canonical's model?

You can't trust any single-vendor-controlled operating system. Apple, 
Microsoft, Canonical, RedHat, Attachmate/Novell, etc. Especially closed 
source ones, but even open source ones, like Canonical has demonstrated.

I'd suggest one that is fully-controlled by the community, like Debian, 
or another one of your preference.
