I knew it! Years and years ago, when I snubbed RedHat after using 6.x longre than any distribution thus far (I started w/ kernel 1.1.16), I realized they had come to resemble Microsoft in virtually every way; especially the horrible products, costly technical support (which I needed because of the products), and expensive boxes.

Today I heard something *shocking*: Microsoft may buy out RedHat! The only reason I could fathom would be for the brand-name recognition, but the article points out something about Microsoft trying to undercut IBM.
