Canonical has openly declared that it is not interested in participating in the development of the kernel Linux. The above was a response to criticism that Microsoft was able to enter the top 20 for the contribution to the development and ahead of such companies as Linaro and Canonical. Many people still believe the software giant “killer» Linux, but in reality the company has made since the advent of version 2.6.36 of the order of 688 changes, that is 1% of the list. The share of Red Hat, Intel, Novell and IBM accounted for 25% of edits. Microsoft’s interest first and foremost due to the provision of support for hypervisor Hyper-V.
Equally notable successes Microsoft could not cause a fair criticism of Canonical not active participation in community life Linux. Company founder Mark Shuttleworth said at the open claim by Red Hat. That being said, criticizing the party uses a variety of technologies, which created the basis for Canonical under Linux. In this context, the firm stance on self-determination Canonical areas of its work force. For the most part the answer comes down to Shuttleworth intention to participate in the company’s principal and most important points of Linux.
