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.
