Historically speaking, if the tremendous spread and growth of Christianity
under persecution is any indication of what lies ahead, then Redhat and
Linux in general should continue to flourish abundantly...

Purchase.... that he might do... once he slams the stock price to the
virtual pittance it was a few times over the last several years.

I just cannot imagine he would buy and kill off one of the greatest mediums
for the potential housing, need, running, and distribution of his products
as RHEL.
