Seem many people are worried if IBM will WRECK Red Hat!

Atrocious grammar aside, there is an extensive history of companies buying things and utterly ruining them.

Annheiser/Busch bought Rolling Rock beer and swore they weren't going to change it. They completely fucked it up.

Microsoft bought Skype and we all know how that turned out. Like a bag of smashed assholes.

Fiat bought Chrysler and now we have Jeep Rubicons with axle tubes so thin that they can tear from making a turn on pavement.


War drums for warfacegod!
