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

People aren't spending money on Linux on the desktop, developers need to get paid to do the best work.

You think Red Hat is paying for all this Desktop development based on its desktop sales? Shuttleworth has around $500 million to his name, so its easy for him to support a small team, but look at how he's used it. They do basically nothing at any level of the Linux system, just stuff to set them apart outside of the important upstreams.
