When I was working in the tower back in Raleigh a couple years ago they had a development team of some sort there from IBM. Never heard anything warm and fuzzy about them. After all the henky crap IBM has been involved in over the years, not least of which to include screwing over both Sony and Toshiba on the PS3 architecture development, I cannot say that this news makes me at all pleased. Still getting RHEL 7 certified, because, well, I need a JOB given I feel a powerful need to eat eventually, but this makes me sad for the future of Red Hat, or now more accurately, IBM Linux.
I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid... and I went ahead anyway.
If it's not coming out for the PC, it's dead to me.
