I guess the question relates to what is the original poster is talking
about. I assumed he was talking about the availability of machines with
a MS OS and a Linux OS. Currently it is Suse people are mentioning that
will be supplied as a companion to a MS operating system. If that
happens I assume money must be transferred to Suse by the Hardware
manufacturers. Why not some money to Red Hat?

If there is some other kind of agreement that is being talked about then
I don't know what exactly the OP is referring to.

If money can't buy happiness, I guess you'll just have to rent it.

Suse/Novell, Linspire and Xandros have signed a pact with Microsoft to protect them from a lawsuit(s).  Many people wish that Red Hat does not fall into these kind of deals and hope that they truly will stand away from them.
