Linux Greg KH, Linux kernel developer delivered a keynote in the Linux plumbing conference about the health of the ecosystem. His message was essentially that distributions that don't contribute to the ecosystem have to rely on the whims of others which is unhealthy for them. Here is an introduction the development model and some interesting statistics about the Linux kernel code. Update by TH: Rebuttals are appearing all over the web, like this one by Canonical's Matt Zimmerman ("He's refuting a claim which has, quite simply, never been made. [...] When this sort of thing happens on mailing lists, it's called trolling."), or this one by another Canonical employee, Dustin Kirkland.

I think the news is worthy enough and my summary is balanced regardless of the pointless trolling in comments. I have been a osnews contributor for a long time and it is not related to where I work for.

To avoid precisely such accusations such as yours, I have usually limited myself to just some specific news but the osnews editor mailed me recently asking me to be "deputy" for Linux related news. I guess your post is a good example of why I should have refrained. Feel free to mail the editors and tell them. Your loss.
