Jon "maddog" Hall on IBM, Red Hat and Free Software

For those of you that might have missed it, Jon "maddog" Hall has penned a piece on the IBM, Red Hat and Free Software discussions going on around the place. There is a fair bit of history in there which is pertinent to me... I had the pleasure of meeting Jon at a Linux Conf back in the day when I worked at IBM NZ. Very nice guy and understood the challenges we were all facing at the time. Some things were fixed, others weren't and then IBM lost the plot (again) by focusing on the US stockmarket rather than what was happening in the IT market... the rest, as they say, is history.
