Hello! Although I am fairly new to Linux, GNU etc., I have read quite
often in the past that RedHat is seen as the "Microsoft" of the Linux
world. I don't exactly know why, but I guess the reason would be that
their technologies and policies would make users depend on RedHat
products only, leaving little room for freedom of choice etc. Is this
But now, RedHat Linux has now become the Fedora project, and from what I
understand from the FAQs, this is a community project sponsored by
RedHat. Does this mean that RedHat is really showing its commitment to
freedom and taking the community into confidence, or is this only a gimmick?
Although all this doesn't affect me in any way, I thought it would be
interesting to know about this from people having a better insight into
the policies of various distributions.
