That's the first time I've seen anyone say anything good about RedHat 
for a while. I've heard some horror stories about RedHat from people
working for RedHat so hearing the other side of the coin is interesting.

He says SuSE and all the others need to consolidate a linux standard, 
and he also doesn't say anything good about RedHat, he makes them sound 
like Microsoft.
