    That was my first reaction when I heard the news, but historically IBM has been a major Linux player and a big contributor, having committed more code than even Google.

I can see where this acquisition makes business sense for IBM. Lets all just be thankful that HPE didn't buy Red Hat!!
    It isn't the owner, it's the size of the influence. You want a situation with lots of equal players competing. When you have a situation where one group has a dominant control they will exert that control and extort and abuse that position. It happens in every market, it's just the nature of it.

    Canonical employees: ~650 (I work here, but Wikipedia says 443).

    Obviously, I'm biased but might be nice to do some of these numbers per employee as well.
    Exactly! Red Hat might have more employees, but how many of them are contributing? It's not like Red Hat only has software devs (that have to contribute), they have many other divisions as well.

    That's only 120 commits over 10 years.

    Do you ever shut up about GNOME?

    I use GNOME and I like it, but I don't feel the need to talk about it 24/7.

    It is known, Khaleesi. All the true believers know this.
