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

Wouldn't it be nicer if we had cars that one could drive with no prior knowledge and no need for a license? If we had such cars which could drive themselves, would you suggest that it was a negative when compared to the ones we have today. Keep in mind that at one time you used to have to turn a crank on your engine to get your car to run, make sure the choke was pulled out before starting, push it in afterwards, and there was no such thing as an automatic transmission. Are we worse off now because driving has become easier?
