He's on the record as saying that yes, he made an error, and that in fact he believes now that Canonical has upsteamed about 100 patches to the kernel. But he says that's still very low. Others brought to his attention that the Ubuntu guys focus mainly on other areas of the Linux stack, and that perhaps he should've included KDE and Gnome patches in his speech to be more fair. He responded by saying that KDE and Gnome aren't relevant, or part of Linux, because KDE and Gnome can also run on FreeBSD and OpenSolaris as well. I found that also interesting as I consider KDE and Gnome as fundamental to the daily use of Linux, and without them, wouldn't be as nice to use or have as many users as it has at the moment.
No announcement yet.
Ubuntu is NOT a part of community
