Very important for certain customers:
RH has a Common Criteria certificate. So, it's basically the ONLY Linux you can run in an IA environment. The other option is Windows. I don't even know if Solaris is there, still. I've seen customers migrate entire Ubuntu networks to Red Hat, to meet this set of requirements.

This means revenue for Red Hat, and this drives them to work towards being a one-stop-shop for IA Enterprise systems.

With other environments leaning towards HIPPA and other sets of security regulations, the fact that Canonical doesn't really play in this space means that Red Hat is pushing in this direction.

You're cherry-picking information to attack libertarians, and your argument is flawed. Perhaps you forgot about the Japanese during WWII, or maybe the fact that state nullification of Federal laws was first used to protect people being pursued under the Fugitive Slave Act.

Or maybe the racist federal war on drugs: "Since the 1980s, federal penalties for crack were 100 times harsher than those for powder cocaine, with African Americans disproportionately sentenced to much lengthier terms.".

It's worked fine for me for 16 years (mine was the very first model, not the later touchscreen models), except for the big mold issue (which after a couple years they did a factory recall and sent a technician to my place to install a bunch of new, redesigned parts in the door and front area), and the water pump failed a couple years ago which I replaced myself. There haven't been any electronic issues. I have read of some people having problems with the wax motor (the thing that controls the door locking) control circuit.

Having been born in Texas, the only union members I ran across on a regular basis were teachers, who were banned by law from even threatening to strike. I've lived elsewhere in the US, and they were more like Texas than the union utopias I hear described.

Try asking a set electrician to help move a prop like a chair and see how much of a slave these guys are.

I ask IBEW members in Alaska to do that, and they say yes, with a smile. Just because everyone's an asshole to you (wonder why), doesn't mean they are to everyone.

Where are you where everyone's in a union? Given the movie example, I'd lean towards CA, but I've worked with grad students and didn't run across any unions there.

Logic is the chastity belt of the mind!
