A Starbucks shareholder ?  ;-)

ref company supports/enhances above :-

A)   You always had a choice anyway.  You can get a RedHat suport contract
B)   Not sure how.  RedHat does a distribution for everyone, ltsp is added,
some programs are added 
and deleted.  The base distribution doesn`t have to be RedHat. It just is
at the moment.
C)   So do we all but that`s not an issue.  Linux will survive without
RedHat as will ltsp and
the BSD`s. 

Appreciated the anwers though.
