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

Anyone actually looking to do anything serious with Linux is still going to Red Hat with their business, which is definitely a good thing.


Ubuntu is widely used as a development workstation. That's somewhat serious stuff too, in the sense that people get paid actual money to do it.
