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

Perhaps you shall start using Ubuntu Server at work then, and see if your view changes. I am sure you will have a lot of fun with the user-friendly apt-get/deb combo that:

- automatic starts a service for you right after you install it (i.e. before you get to configure it)

- requires a service to stay up before you uninstall the package, so that it can perform the service stopping for you

- changes random config in php.ini/postgresql.conf/etc because Ubuntu is so much better than upstream
