Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Greg DeKoenigsberg set off what would become a firestorm of debate in the Linux community last week when he posted rant against Canonical for their low ranking on number of commits to GNOME, based on a recent census study. Over the weekend, DeKoenigsberg apologized for the rant and explained in a more measured tone why he lashed out in anger at the findings of the GNOME Census, then again later at Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth's response to the debate, a broader argument against tribalism.

Canonical and Ubuntu are riding on every bodies coattails, especially Debian's. It's based on Debian Sid for crying out loud.

I can't believe that in all this moaning and bitching by Ubuntu and RedHat fans, this single fact was forgotten. I use Ubuntu(Kubuntu, actually), but it's built on Debian, and wouldn't be nearly as good as it is without it.
