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

How many of those developers are actually paying to utilize Ubuntu? Very few would be my guess.

When I said "serious" I meant people doing mission critical jobs. No disrespect to developers, but other than losing your unsaved work, there are few risks to a companies bottom line if your system goes down for a while.
