Maybe it wasn't a Red Hat employee who gave me that impression. I don't claim to be an expert on RH finances (although i've just read your 2002 10k report http://media.corporate-ir.net/media_files/NSD/RHAT/reports/RHAT_06170210k.pdf and it seems to indicate consistent net losses). Folks have been suggesting that RH *had* to make this move at the risk of going under. Anyway, that's not the main point i was trying to address. It was the issue of the tie between the OS and the boxed set. Mandrake understand this distinction. Here is their products page: http://www.mandrakestore.com/mdkworld/index.php?storereferer=&LANG=en_US&UID=&CUSTID=&origin_= Notice that you can buy both boxed sets and just CDs. >>A: Because we read from top to bottom, left to right. >>Q: Why should i start my reply below the quoted text? > > Now that is classic! I love it! ;o) Daniel Barron (of Dan's Guardian) has a similar one; see, e.g.: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/dansguardian/message/4748 You can insult top posters with a very wide range of comments by simply starting with the A and finishing with the Q! :-) -- Paul http://paulgear.webhop.net A: Because we read from top to bottom, left to right.
