Solaris tried to take over the "Sunos/bsd status quo", that was a 
disaster, it was a good idea but licensing killed it.

I think that 'Rocky idea' has some potential.

Centos and RH are dead, well in a hopeless coma for now.  It's IBM,  
Torvalds' Linux almost killed off IBM, Oracle, Novell and did a lot of 
'damage' to MS in that market, IBM is still a dinosaur with the same 
70's brain capacity, it won't be able to pull it off even if they had a 
monopoly on OS' in general.
