Look, no offense, but what is it with you OSS types that makes you think you are owed a donation? As was already pointed out, Red Hat does help bankroll things, including paying developers in their employ, etc., but the truth is that if you are a developer and you choose to put your software out there as open source, then Red Hat or Novel or even Microsoft has every right to use it as they wish so long as they abide by the terms of the license.

I see so many articles every week or comments on articles that seem to me to imply a sort of sense of entitlement at work here.

Well, you could note that he said "hope" not "expect". He hopes they donate some money. So do I. What's wrong with that? If they don't, no biggie, but I hope they do. Who doesn't like it when companies spread some money around?
