So they can't actually do any harm to linux distros. Sure, Ubuntu and the big ones might go away, or start being something that none of us want. But maybe having 10k different distros will now be an advantage, rather than a disadvantage (as some would say). Because there's always going to be someone out there making one that isn't owned by any of these scummy corporations.
Isn't it like this: They don't own the license, and never will. So linux and gnu will always remain free and open source. And without the license, they're really quite limited in what they can actually do. Sure if you or I start the next Canonical, or Red hat, they can buy us out. If we chose to sell. But there will always just be someone else. Cause they can't control the license. Its like they'll always be playing wack-a-mole.
Always another mole to wack, its a game you can never win.
