Well, you can think "ketchup" if you like, but I think you're thinking "catsup". Red Hat is just another "also ran" in the Linux world. The leader in numbers, I think, is Corel, who have sold more copies of Linux in one year (20 million alone in one humongous deal with PC motherboard makers) than all of the rest of the vendors put together. The leader in Linux applications is probably Sun (Star Office) or Corel (WordPerfect, Corel Draw). The leader in Linux connectivity is Corel/Inprise (CORBA). Red Hat is overpriced and boring. The owner of the "ketchup" brand is turning out to be Corel. Red Hat's "catsup" is OK, but its taste is off, and it's not quite like the real thing. Corel's share price can only go up, and RHAT, well ... what can I say ... it's already gone up?
