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

Canonical is attracting nothing of value to Linux. All they're attracting are users, and very few that actually know what they're doing stick around.


Attracting users to Linux is very valuable, it encourages developers to consider Linux as a viable platform.

Redhat and Ubuntu are productive in different ways.
Redhat and Ubuntu have different approaches.
Redhat and Ubuntu are not SCO ;)
