Intel + Netscape + RedHat?

Friday September 25th, 1998

Joel Caris writes in with a link to an interesting deal in the making. Joel writes, "This is about a deal between Intel, Netscape, and Red Hat to be announced Tuesday. I thought it might be of interest to MozillaZine readers, as Linux paved the way for open source. And anything that helps it challenge Windows is good news."

Also, stay tuned for the Week in Review! It may go up tomorrow if I pass out from exhaustion.

Clearly "Sonik" (a cosole game player?) has not been paying attention to the news. "George" was not refering to the Netscape/Intel support in RedHat's distribution, but Netscape and Intel (the companies) buying into RedHat Software. And, yes I too feel that some worry should be aimed at a single distribution becoming the focus of so much Linux attention. The best case result is that RedHat becomes a sort of Enterprise Linux, which uses the best of what comes out of all of the other distributions, but I'm not so sure. IMHO, the last thing we need is a "One True Linux" distribution.
