I don't at all disagree with your reasons for why IBM pursued RH nor do I think they have any specific intentions to alter the enterprise and desktop distributions, but IBM has a history of flailing around like a drunken giant in the town square - RH could very well be what they need to finally stabilise, or it could suffer under IBM's questionable decision-making and experience some turbulence before being sold or spun off. We'll see what happens.
My company was acquired by IBM 2 years ago. I have to say I was very nervous at first but I think overall they did a really good job considering how small we were and how big they are. I was definitely surprised and 2 years later I'm still there.

Edit: Side note I'm super excited that I now get access to all this cool Red Hat stuff.
