Here's one of the responses on Planet Ubuntu:

Note the numbers.  Canonical is tiny by comparison.

Here's another:
http://mdzlog.wordpress.com/2008/09/17/greg-kh-linux-ecosystem/
"Greg considers the “Linux ecosystem” to be GCC, binutils, the Linux
kernel, X.org, and a handful of other projects.  He disregards most of
the desktop stack (including GNOME and KDE), all desktop and server
applications, and most anything else that is recognizable to an end user
as “Linux”."

Most of Ubuntu's upstream work goes to the desktop's usability, and if
Greg KH doesn't consider the desktop part of Linux's ecosystem, well,
there you go.
