Damn lies

As somebody that ships both Fedora and ubuntu I know that (at least for me) ubuntu outstrips Fedora by a 10:1 or better ratio.

Does that mean that ubuntu is ten times better than Fedora? No, purely that when Linux is mentioned generally either ubuntu or Red Hat is the topic.  Fedora is regarded as the "poor cousin" to these - rightly or wrongly.

If more focus was paid on brand recognition I am sure that fedora could consistently outsell (outgiveaway?) ubuntu.

Best regards

Only within the last month and this is because we had a release in this
timeframe, Ubuntu didn't. It's always like this when one of us releases
a new version.
