Red Hat "San Francisco‚Ä"Red Hat is the strongest Linux company in the world when it comes to servers, but it has almost no presence on the desktop. That will be changing in 2012 with the reintroduction of a Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environments-based virtual desktop infrastructure."

RH blew it back in 2003

RH went back and forth several times over whether to offer and/or promote Desktop Linux in the late 90s and early 00s.

In 2003 they finally spun off Fedora Project and retreated to the server space.

Now it's far too late for them to have any impact on the world of Desktop Linux beyond their narrow customer base.
