    I looked for "RedHat / Red Hat". Not for "linux community members".
    That's what I wrote.

    I didn't look for "Microsoft employees that contribute to RFC's under
    their own names" either.

    The original statement was

    --- cut --
    "Microsoft making 370 times more than RedHat says _nothing_ about
    their actual achievement in terms of software development."
    --- cut --

    BTW: Microsofts' contributions to RFCs has to me the same "face value"
    as IBMs' contributions to the Linux kernel. It is an small piece of IP
    ( :-) ) given to get lots of leverage for closed/proprietary stuff.

    Nah. :-)
