Open Season 8: Red Hat, Yahoo!, and creepy Google
The eighth installment of Open Season finishes 2007 with a bang...or a whimper. You choose.
The eighth installment of The Register's Open Season is now live and worth a listen. From Ashlee Vance's show notes:
...[W]e...look[ed] at things such as Yahoo!'s sponsorship of the Apache Software Foundation, Red Hat's woes (we recorded this before the new CEO splash) and Google's bid for brain domination.
Part of the Red Hat discussion included speculation about IBM going whole hog with Ubuntu on the server. Dave and Matt say this will happen sooner than we think. I'm skeptical.
As always, it was fun to record. Hopefully it's mildly useful to hear.
