More people using linux will generate more interest, more development, etc etc etc. Next to that kind of influence, direct code contributions are just icing on the cake (at least, that's how I see it).
    I whole hartedly agree with this myself.

    You have been discussing the whole stack for quite a while now.

    Nah, Ubuntu only contribute like 0.1% of all kernel patches. AFAIK they don't give anything back to Gnome/KDE either. They are just being blood-leeching parasitic, err, parasites that use other people's hard work to attract naive users and brainswash them into ubuntards, before unleashing them to the world to proclaim how great Ubuntu is and rig distro usage statistics in the name of Shuttleworth, the spaceman!!1one

    At least that's how some people here see it (and by some people I mean next9).

    Sorry, I couldn't resist, there was too much logic in your post. We can't let the voice of reason prevail on this thread!

    You stand by statements you have made right?

    Bon Dieu! You're forgetting all the important packages Ubuntu's contributed back to Debian! Like update-manager and update-notifier! And, um, well, um, let's see...um...
    Wow, I would have never thought of that. So you're basically saying that the Ubuntu people are using GPL'd Debian sources in ways that GPL allows?

    I guess they should change the license into something less permissive. Those parasites at Canonical must be stopped at any cost. Let's not forget what permissive licenses did to Wine, they had to change the license in order to stop parasites like Cedega.

    Oh, would you like fries with that hypocrisy?
    Oh dear, see I can become selective with info too.

    This is the referenced article: http://www.linux-magazine.com/Online...r-Desktop-Help

    and I don't see anything talking about Ubuntu parasitism in there. In other words, you just provided a "real world example" of a quotation fail.

    Some people just base on what's in this thread and didn't listen to Greg's talk, so they couldn't know if Greg was talking only about Linux (kernel) or also about Linux distributions. There's also possibility Greg calls Linux distros just Linux, because he's not gnu's fanboy and/or he doesn't like to call them another way. Btw. a proof that Greg doesn't call Linux distros just Linux needed.

    If Greg said:

    KDE and Gnome aren't relevant, or part of Linux, because KDE and Gnome can also run on FreeBSD and OpenSolaris as well
    He [also] meant Linux as entire OS, because Freebsd and Opensolaris are entire OS'es. So you called him a pedantic idiot, right?
