Linux As we mentioned in a previous article, Red Hat advocate Greg DeKoenigsberg claimed that due to the much larger amount of code it's contributed, Red Hat is a better open source citizen than Canonical, adding, "Canonical is a marketing organization masquerading as an engineering organization." A Computerworld blog retorts that that's no insult; and that marketing Linux could be just as important to the cause as contributing code. Updated

Who Really Contributes the Most?

Who gives a damn? Let contributers contribute in the way they can. Is Linux better off because of the contributions of Canonical or Red Hat obviously.

Sometimes it would be better if people kept their own sectarian thoughts to themselves. I can't believe that Ubuntu server is any threat to Red Hat, so why the upset? both have their own niche in open-source ecology.
