What?!? I missed this the first time around. I work with many
"Government Agencies" and they are damn near standardizing on Red Hat. I
know there's a backlash in the Linux "Power User" community but, as I
said on some other site which I can't remember, it's more related to the
"fight the establishment" attitude in the Software Libre community.
See, the reason many people moved to Linux is because it was
"radical". Now that Red Hat is seen as the main Linux vendor it is now
look upon as the establishment. If SuSE or Caldera or any distro vendor
were in the same position now that Red Hat is in you would see the same
backlash against them.
