This is great news. Red hat is THE corporate standard for Linux based OSes and it's awesome to see them nearing another release.

As great as the community has been in driving more bugfixes in the more visible portions of the Linux ecosystem, without corporate sponsors like Red Hat, we wouldn't have the great multipurpose full featured OS that Linux based systems have become. It takes a business like Red Hat to do the non-glamorous coding work that needs to be done to ensure a stable and viable system that corporate environments require.

For that and for sponsoring the Fedora project (running Fedora 13 Beta) I salute them.
