I really hope the business model RH, Novell and Oracle use will die and I hope this is the first indication that it will die eventually. Oracle can just buy one RH license and continue to undercut RH because they don't waste millions on creating totally stupid franken-kernels that only appeal to dumb people that fell for false stability marketing.
A distro should be developed like the kernel itself. There should be one community that builds the distro releases and a lot of companies and individuals should drive it into the directions they want.
Where would Debian be if Novell and RH and Oracle etc had only put their resources into it instead of creating a whole new distro?
Logic dictates that not using free resources and wasting resources will be punished. I don't think we a free market anymore, but I hope that marketforces will bring down non-community distros.
