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:

Notice that you can buy both boxed sets and just CDs.

Daniel Barron (of Dan's Guardian) has a similar one; see, e.g.:

You can insult top posters with a very wide range of comments by simply
starting with the A and finishing with the Q!  :-)
