You know, when you continue with this nonsense about hard working folks at Red Hat being parasites, I just don't have any patience to reply to with anything but an assertion that you must hate their guts.
You obviously don't understand the first thing about open source. Without community, there isn't any (examples: OOo, OpenSolaris). With community, there is (examples: Linux, Apache).
For anyone that understands what Red Hat does, it is quite clear they do not need to "acquire" Linux. After all, their core product is a distro, not the kernel (which I will bet they can swap to say BSD if they wanted to within 5 to 6 Fedora cycles).
When 90% of your distro is coming from elsewhere, this is not called parasitic, it is called open source community. The waste of effort in $50G is largely unnecesary duplication and profiteering, which FOSS mostly eliminates.
So, no, open source is not ten times more efficient because programmers are ten times better. If is more efficient because there are no artificial IP barriers that would cause unnecessary duplication and profiteering. What Red Hat writes today, you can improve tomorrow.
