No doubt he instills a sense of inconfidence and fear in the minds of those
not using RH or SuSE. I know he is intended to serve his own business, but
spitting at predecessors and roots is utterly unnecessary. Besides, what's
wrong with Canonical's (X)ubuntu or even Mandriva? I recommend both to
people and I see no hypocrisy. I primarily use SuSE, but I am very impressed
with other distributions. Moreover, all serve a fine purpose. Should we also
kill DAL because legacy hardware does not deserve a place in out world? A
word without (ort with little) choice is not worth living in.
