    Just read that Microsoft bought Redhat... I wonder what affect this is going to have on future development, open source, etc... And how this is going to &directly& affect those of us using it for our hosting systems...
    Looks like it's AOL owning all the good content and Microsoft controlling operating systems... Getting so it's just not fun any more like it used to be....

    Some of the guys on the same list that I read the news from are saying it's a hoax - so HOPEFULLY - you are right, I've been lied to.

    I don't think MS dare buy RedHat, they would be soooo taken over the coals again for being a monopoly.
