schroder weighs in

Carla Schroder expressed many of the same thoughts I've had about the constant flaming that goes on concerning Canonical and Ubuntu in today's piece, "Ubuntu: the Bad, Selfish Linux," where she discusses Greg DeKoenigsberg's "Red Hat 16%, Canonical 1%." Says Schroder:

"I do know that it takes much more than code to make Linux successful: marketing, user interface design, attracting new users, documentation, partnering with Tier 1 and independent vendors, turning users into contributors, getting Linux more into the mainstream, and much more. Isn't it funny how all these years many Linux fans have been wishing for someone to come along and do all these things? And here they are, and what happens? Flames."

Thank you.
