I don’t usually talk much about distros I don’t normally use, but I felt this article was to important to pass up. It looks like Red Hat Inc. is giving up on the Fedora Foundation. Why? Because they’ve decided it would be more efficient to run Fedora without the Foundation. Its that simple really. They realized there was nothing the Foundation could do that a large community couldn’t already do. With that said, what does that mean for the regular user, like you and I? Not much really. In fact, I can’t seem to find any difference. Red Hat has for the past 10 years supported a free version of Linux, and according to this site, have no intention of stopping that support. So you and I still get a free version of Linux.
Finally, I guess your asking why is this so important? I don’t know. But I thought it sounded like something the open source community would be interested in. That’s such a lame reason, I know. But with or without a Fedora Foundation, we’ll still have Fedora and that’s all that really matters, so no need to panic. Enjoy the Penguins!
