Please, yeah poor, poor Redhat, they are struggling these days, *cough*
they needed to do this in order to survive. I thought it didn't have
anything to do with cashing in. Really it's there choice if the decide to

all becomes about making money, nowhere close to the original ideals for
the company when it was started.
