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

What really surprised me is how tiny is the Linux bar in Asia or Africa. Being those continents supposedly poor (not all of Asia, though) one would expect the opposite.

Poor people pirate windows, or don't have a computer.

Linux is favored by technically sophisticated users, which typically are not in the low income slice of the pie.
