Re: Red Hat users pay up to run Fedora on Windows 8 machines
said by rexbinary:Carrot and a stick. Microsoft and good-faith, more like Red Hat being invited to the big boys table set before the kings.
Here is Red Hat's official response:
Some conspiracy theorists bristle at the thought of Red Hat and other Linux distributions using a Microsoft initiated key registration scheme. Suffice it to say that Red Hat would not have endorsed this model if we were not comfortable that it is a good-faith initiative.
As also said by tuxraider.. this is about locking the system and locking out competition by going along with a not-actual competitor's anti-competitive scheme. The friendly worded press releases are just fluff to keep the fans happy while using words that drive wedges and label those who don't agree as crazy in the minds of those who follow Red Hats path.
Say no to JAMS!
