languages exist. There are probably only going to be one or two OS' that reach
the critical mass of 10 million plus users. Will there be room for more than
one OS for 10 million plus users? I don't know. I guess that depends on the
population of the world.
If there's another OS came out that was a Free OS and started doing well then
will we see something like Red Hat BSD or something?
I think comes back to the critical mass question. I think that for Red Hat,
it's better to enhance our technical solutions to meet customer requirements
than it is to dilute our brand with other operating systems that don't have
the critical mass of Red Hat Linux or eCos.
