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

The corporate world has completely ignored Ubuntu in case you hadn't noticed.

Pretty much no other company has put a serious effort on pushing the Linux desktop, so while Ubuntu hasn't succeeded on the corporate world it has helped Linux grow in mind share.

I don't think that's something that hurts Linux.
