Mandrive CEO and Ubuntu again

Are we seing the rise of lies and FUD from Mandriva boss François Bancilhon against Ubuntu?
The original comments are found here and they are given a thorough comment on Fellowship of fsfe


François Bancilhon, CEO of Mandriva, recently did an interview for the Mandriva Club. During that interview, he did some serious Ubuntu bashing. Some of his arguments amounted to straight lies and FUD.

Here some examples:

“One possible worse case scenario is that Ubuntu's plan is to use money to put all other community-based distros out of business and then start monetizing the installed base.”

1.) Ubuntu pledges on it's website that it will never do what Mandrake/Mandriva has done, offering a so-called “Premium” version for money. They might break this promise but how likely is that, really? Therefore, this is a dodgy argument, others would simply call it FUD. Aha, A CEO of a so-called Open Source company taking refuge to FUD then, isn't he? Well, we all know who the usual culprits are, what does that tell us about Mandriva and Francois?
