I think we are talking about 2 different issues here.
1 is the Linux version that is free and 2 is the commercial version (IBM-Red
Hat).  What is good about 1 may not be true of 2.
We pick our strategic alliances carefully.  We use MS on the desktop and for
email but the AS/400 is the money maker.  We don't use Java, we don't use
J++ and we only use VB in a few applications. 
Yes, I guess the whims of IBM might affect us but they have been pretty good
to me so far.

        It doesn't mean anything that IBM is now offering support for
        Linux?  Not to mention other large companies?  Nor the fact
        that more web servers use Linux than any other OS?  Linux IS
        already well in the main stream.
