Hello Shock:

Just last night I was reading a post on Red Herring dot. com on the Linux companies out there right now, especially with Caldera getting for an IPO.

The point in the article that really struck me was the statement "Red Hat is Trading at 300 times revenues while Microsoft trades at on 23 times revenues." The author of the article then went on to makes the case that the Linux companies are overvalued.

But we know the market, to a large degree is efficient. So I was confused. But when I read your posts this morning, I understand where Linux/Open Sourcing is coming from and I can see where the opportunity is for Red Hat.

Thanks for your efforts!

Tony Kelso
