Subject: Fw: Red Hat Linux end-of-life update andtransition planning

And now that SUSE is being bought by Novell (with some $50 million
infusion from IBM), how long do you think it will be before SUSE follows
RH's lead.  Now IBM has RedHat, SUSE and Novell in their pockets and
Microsoft has SCO.  My money is on IBM when the dust settles, but the
simple fact is that there is money to be made.  The days of getting a
constantly up-to-date Linux distro without having to pay through the
nose for support are going the way of the Dodo.

Now when your boss asks you for justification on using Linux instead of
M$ crap, what's your new response going to be?  Gartner's going to make
a fortune on figuring all this out for those that can only make
decisions from listening to them.

Theo rock on!
