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

I would LOVE it if Ubuntu decided to fork everything, then you'll see how strong their expertise really are. That would be hilarious to watch.


Canonical already started from Debian repository (universe and multiverse) to Gnome called Ayatana (https://launchpad.net/ayatana).

If that is the way to contribute to Linux ecosystem, I will say: no thanks. Instead of recognizing their wrong doing and actively participate to the community, Ubuntu founders keep shifting the blame.

If that means to be attacked by fanboys, so be it.
