Earlier this week we published an article with an analysis of the Ubuntu Edge Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, and the outlook was bleak. Donations had slowed to a crawl, and Canonical's \$32 million goal appeared to be little more than a pipe dream.

Yes, readers replied, donations had died off, but that's par the course for crowdfunding efforts.

Although the Ubuntu Edge has been record-breaking in its crowdfunding efforts, the fundraising campaign will fall well short of its 32 million dollar target.
