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

In the European countries I have been (including The Netherlands, where I live), you see far more MacBooks than laptops running Linux. I can't imagine it's any different on old-fashioned desktops.

So, please provide sources if you state percentages. Since, nearly every statistic for Europe shows the opposite. One typical example:
