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

One more kick on this dead horse -

I already tried the new opensuse and rejected it as broken.

I have been running fedora 13 for a few days. I was *this* close to saying it's actually a pretty good distro. Now, though, I switched to compiz and alt-tab stopped working. It acts the same as "tab" on my system. Switching off compiz fixes the problem.

Ubuntu (esp. Lucid) is still the best distro among the 'name brands', at least on my computers.

I guess I'll try debian squeeze on this hobby computer next...
