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

Thanks Professor Obvious for pointing out that the company that is many times bigger, with many more engineers and with the much larger revenue contributes more and is more important. We'd never have figured that out on our own.
