HP Announced that they have certified the 12.04 release of Ubuntu for use with their hardware. While there was never a time when it wouldn't have run this means that support calls will get answered. This certification shows both HP commitment to Linux and the Ubuntu specificly. We love seeing HP support linux and really starting to focus on it.

Red Hat who wasn't a member of the OpenStack Alliance/Group until this week has contributed more code than Ubuntu's parent company and a founding member. The big surprise for some of us here was that Rackspace, someone we don't normally assocaite with software development, is the number one developer on the project. They account for 55% of the code followed by Nebula with 10%. Red Hat accounted for 7.9% and Canonical put up a mere 2.6%. Sounds pretty lopsided? Well when you think about the fact that there are more than 150 companies that are part of the group they all look pretty good. Supporting open products should be applauded by both of these.
