Huh? Who told?? <grins insanely>

Besides being crazy, I get iRaTe at times with poor ISP service,
misquoted fees and various sundry issues that may cause me to switch. No
matter to me, as I have pop service from Gmail and my email address has
yet to change. AND RedHat used Google in-house, from the day of Google's
inception. We were urged to use their search services back in 1999-2000.
This was back when Matthew was just coming on board, IPO, etc. 

So, Google has a very long close relationship with RedHat. If guilt
through association has context here, so does Fedora. Without going
crazy here, I fail to see just how maintaining a relationship with
Gmail, which has never failed me, equates to "hiding". I use what works
for me and it's never cost me one dime. :| Ric
