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.

Personally I think LinuxHater have about as much credibility as all the equally lame and retarded Windows hating sites out there. If you hate an OS so much that you have to create an entire blog about how much it sucks and how much you hate it you need to either get out and get a life or seek professional help.

Not really. There are many shortcomings that LH is entitled to point out, and when you actually read some of the things that LH has gone through it has to have been made by someone who wants Linux to get better, but is a bit frustrated with the status quo today.

I can read about those exact shortcomings more coherently elsewhere and without the retarded, foulmouthed language.
