Red Hat Back in September 2003, when Red Hat discontinued its home-oriented Red Hat Linux desktop and offloaded that market to the community-driven but Red Hat-sponsored Fedora Project, many people were left wondering if Red Hat would ever again offer a product aimed at home desktops. We have the answer now.

That really sounds like a good long term business plan, the old Global Desktop announcement says:

"To address the demand for Linux on desktop systems by our customers in emerging markets, Intel and Red Hat worked together to deliver a pre-certified, cost-effective solution for Intel's reseller channel to extend their business value"

looks like the battle will be on machines preloaded with it. The traditional desktop is changing, people now use more mobile devices (smartphones, laptops, subnotebook like the Eee PC). I know!! I know!! I am not predicting the death of the PC again :-). We need computers more than when the PC was born, and the traditional PC does not fit that model
