RedHat Linux is "opening a new chapter in its 10-year history"

The quoted words open the following CNET News article:


Bull. They're selling annual desktop licenses for $70 a piece and combining them with a server for remote management. Another quote: this is RedHat's "first version of the open-source operating system for desktop computers". Then what the hell have they been producing since they were created? What have the Gnome and KDE folks been working on these past years? Granted, they haven't done a terribly good job of it. And maybe they haven't released desktop OS's under annual subscription fees, or released a product specifically called 'Red Hat Desktop'. But, come on.

I wish my Slashdot RSS feed was working. Then I would have read this first and been much happier.
