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.

Spot the Ubuntu lover...

Oh please, all you Ubuntu lovers go home. Ubuntu is a desktop distribution. By all accounts, they give bugger all back to the kernel team. The talk/presentation was about giving back to the kernel. Greg was simply referring to this, and nothing else. He has publically acknowledged on his blog this.

Get a life you Ubuntu lovers...

Personally, I think Ubuntu is vastly overrated. You're all a bunch of lemmings (or should that be lemons?).
