A match made in heaven

So, RH pays 350 mil­lions for JBoss.

And here are some quotes the guys at the reg­is­ter have digged up:

Our own talks with RH broke down, RH is NOT IN THE BUSI­NESS OF PAY­ING OPEN SOURCE DE­VEL­OP­ER­S, we are, that is why we cre­at­ed JBoss in­c. RH want­ed to keep the ser­vices rev­enues all to them­selves. That is the dirty lit­tle se­cret, so for them to come out and claim they are the open source when we know the re­al­i­ty is dis­taste­ful.

Hon­est­ly? I have had my trou­bles with RH in the past about their po­si­tions on KDE, and ev­ery­thing, but hey... at least I did­n't lat­er sell my chil­dren to them ;-)

OTO­H, Fleury is quite a char­ac­ter. Or a rav­ing para­noid :

Dad­dy, why are you still work­ing on a Sun­day? Is IBM still af­ter you?

My bet: you will not hear any­thing from Fleury for a while. Then, in some time (I put the over/ un­der at oc­to­ber) he will dis­creet­ly re­sign/be fired.
