A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
"The Linaro FAQ make[s] it clear that Linaro is not planning on creating a new distribution [...] instead, pitching in on upstream projects to simplify and optimize for ARM systems."
Hopefully this effort will help put to bed the meme that Canonical do not contribute upstream. There's real wood ("tens of millions of dollars") behind this arrow.

Regardless, I look forward to seeing Canonical moving up in the kernel contribution statistic reports in a verifiable commitment to upstreaming the ARM improvements. Canonical can certainly talk the talk. I'm not sure there's much in the way of demonstrative evidence that as an organization they walk the walk often enough.

Of course I wouldn't reveal private information [financial or otherwise], even if I was privy to it [which I'm not]. Whatever's public is public.
The kernel is obviously not the only upstream project in the world. I think we both realize that.
It's your privilege to hold whatever biases you like, and voice them in whichever manner of tone pleases you. It's my privilege to go look for more productive conversations.

Yes we are both able to be biased. I however am willing to look past bias at focus on verifiable fact. You went to all the trouble to allude that the millions of dollars going into Linaro are Canonical's dollars, and an as such are adequate substitute for actual engineering work. You might was well go the extra step and provide authoritative references which back up your opinion.
