    I guess pretty soon others (SuSE, etc) will follow RH's path...

            Got the same f-you-gram today - already figuring out what distro
    to fall back to but 99% of my experience has been on Redhat. No time to
    try them all....so FreeBSD/SuSE/Mandrake - what are your opinions of
    each? Flexiblity, ease of use, ease of migration, security etc.

                    Hey Red Hat.. I've got a migration plan for you... it's
    called BSD / SuSE /
                    Mandrake.
