Re: Red Hat CEO Says He Talked Patents with Microsoft (Reuters)



If the CEO of RedHat says "I can't answer the question" than it means
that atleast something is going on between RedHat and Microsoft. and
i'm not happy about that at all. Fedora is still being "ruled" by
redhat so this doesn't affect RedHat alone but also Fedora. At this
moment i'm kinda puzzled with what to do with this.
it's fine if they make a deal with Microsoft. as long as it's NOT the
patent deal.

I as a fedora user want to know the truth about this.
Anyone in the fedora management team or (better) the redhat management
team that can give some clarification about this?

I don't see how this is on topic in this. At any rate Red Hat has
already clarified it's position on both the interoperability and patent
fronts several times now.
