The fact that IBM is buying RH isn't make me weep as much as this 
statement --

"The open source, enterprise software maker will become a unit of IBM’s 
Hybrid Cloud division, with Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst joining IBM’s 
senior management team and reporting to CEO Ginni Rometty."

Will the end-user market in all facets (desktop Linux?) continue to be 


"Less is MORE."
