Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu Linux, has struck back at claims made by Microsoft's Brandon LeBlanc about Windows' success in netbooks compared to Linux. Most of the claims made by LeBlanc are refuted quite accurately by Canonical's Chris Kenyon in a blog post titled "Microsoft, FUD and the netbook market".

That may be the case, but it does not change the fact that GNU software is the largest amount from any one source by a long way.


So what? That doesn't mean that it becomes GNU/Linux. GNU is an umbrella project: it isn't one guy writing everything, furiously. For what it's worth, a lot of the key developers who work on GNU projects are employed by Redhat and a lot of those projects are hosted by Redhat: should it be Redhat/GNU?
