Today is a sad day for open source. I found out only a couple of hours ago that Red Hat, like many other open source companies before it, decided to sell itself to a group that will likely do what Oracle did to Sun Microsystems. It's a damn shame. The only way this will work is if IBM is smart enough to leave Red Hat as is and just utilize it for integration.

I imagine all my friends over there must be all kinds of livid/concerned. Chin up and hope for the best while preparing for the worst.
