Ever wonder why with a massive amount of busy signals and a high cost why AOL is the #1 ISP?
Well it is because most of the public is complete morons, and they know crap about technology. I have Redhat 6 on my computer, and I HATE M$. Linux will be the future of OSes, but unless it is moron proof, or people obtain some computer intellegence, it has a long way to go. I am very good with computers, but I had a very hard time putting in experimental drivers for my video card. I could only see a little part of the screen, because the default driver made everything HUGE!
This stock is high right now because Wall St. hears of an alternative to the overpriced microsoft. Well, keep in mind that when Linux does catch on, many will make redhat variations..etc because it is OPEN SOURCE. Yes folks, Linux is open source, so techies are free to alter anyhting. That makes it very low margin. I got my RedHat 6 for $2 from http://www.cheapbytes.com . It is not pirated either, Open source again.
The point is that RedHat is No MSFT. It will never be that big, which is good for me, and good for computing. Linux is great for inovative coders, and open source makes it free to the masses. The bad part is: It makes it not very profitable.
