    Wow, I hope RedHat had some good reasons for letting IBM buy it. Typically, when an entrepeneurial company is taken over by a staid corporation, the minor company gets the guts sucked out of it leaving a dried up husk. RedHat blog that they will become a distinct IBM unit.

    Time will tell just how distinct and for how long that distinct nature will last. Remember Nokia!

    IBM actually has quite a good record when it comes to UNIX based OS’s. A court ruled that IBM and AT&T actually own UNIX but with major contributions from third parties. It wasn’t until the idiots at SCO tried to claim they owned UNIX that IBM took any action over ownership and only then because SCO were trying to sue them for its use.
