Considering Red Hat's market-leading position, I think it's fair for
LSB to ask Red Hat to lead a little more aggressively than that.

The reality we're all dancing around is that Red Hat's choice in this
regard will by itself effectively make or break the FHS.  Therefore,
if Red Hat wants to make FHS work (and I am presuming that is true)
then now is none too soon to start moving.

See, when the GOVERNMENT spends money, it creates jobs; whereas when the money
is left in the hands of TAXPAYERS, God only knows what they do with it.  Bake
it into pies, probably.  Anything to avoid creating jobs.
