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

It should be pretty obvious by now that something more than lots of buzz is needed, and in my opinion whoever thinks that things are gonna change significantly and users are gonna flood to Ubuntu (or any other Linux for that matter) is only kidding himself.

Thinks are going to change significantly. It might take 10 years, but that's no problem because financial problems or failure to gain mindshare in short term are not real problems for Linux as a whole.

Linux is pretty much unstoppable. And it's only going to win more when people shift more and more to different form factors (phones and tablets).
