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

Try any other distro, and you'll quickly see how polished Ubuntu is in comparison. For many distros, it almost feels like they didn't even try it before shipping.


Really? I have just installed Mandriva 2010.1 Powerpack and I found it a lot more polished (and complete) than Ubuntu. Hardware detection and configuration were simply amazing (I put it on a notebook).
Same goes for PCLinuxOS. And openSUSE isn't bad either.
