Red Hat FUD Was Off Target

Several days ago we happened to mention some Red Hat FUD. Well, Red Hat's results are solid, unlike Novell's. Here is the latest:

Red Hat Inc. tapped former Delta Air Lines Inc. executive James Whitehurst to lead the company into a new phase of growth, as the open source provider said Thursday its third-quarter earnings rose 12 percent.


Yes, the company gets a new CEO as well.

In a surprise move, Red Hat said Thursday that Matthew Szulik will step down as president and chief executive on January 1, to be replaced by James Whitehurst, Delta Airlines' former chief operating officer.


And an obligatory comment consider:

Red Hat is for those that know better !. If anyone listens to the BS FUD about Red Hat, they are going to be pulled by the chain around their neck about everything !. Most of the BS about Red Hat, is because Novell needs business, come on with layoffs and all to max profits ?. Imo if not for Red Hat Novell would be lost for GPL code as they are lost on how to be a successful distro. The thinking by some about - Let's make a Deal with Microsoft, that btw was Novell's big idea to kill Red Hat and have other distros begging Microsoft, while those that would have signed a deal being limited under Microsoft's first deal with Novell. This does not work with a community as the community around Linux as Novell is in pain over having that knowledge now and grab for RH gold to live.


Remember that Novell's deal with Microsoft is an anti-Red Hat deal. It always has been. The same goes goes for other companies that went the wrong way).
