IBM Acquires RedHat


#108

I for one look forward to Red International Business Hat Linux. It has a nice ring to it…


#109

Sound dRIBHL to me.


#110

I can’t wait for IBM Plex to be the default font in Gnome


#111

I think the conversation has veered off topic. You guys are now arguing about distros.


#112

Welcome to the forum.


#115

It was maybe relevant to express that you’d consider switching to different distro because you distrust IBM and its plans for Red Hat. But then arguing specifics seems to be a different topic to me.


#116

:comet: Cleaned the thread up a bit :ok_hand:


#117

IBM do sell server hardware that runs containers etc.

If they want into the cloud on both hardware and software. I can understand that.

I see that normies are devolving to VNC screens that only talk to the cloud. So get on the cloud software / hardware / networking is the next big thing.

Normies are to stupid to be in charge of a PC and clicking web links on a porn site like a maniac :slight_smile:

That’s my brother.

Follow up: IBM takeover and death of KDE


is it true it will also end on Fedora??


#119

We (may) now know the real reason for that IBM takeover. A distraction for Red Hat to axe KDE

This is the dumbest thing I’ve heard today.

KDE is a thing of the past.

End? You can install any DE you’d like on fedora.


#120

Bro, don’t you know that a billion dollar company cares about ruining what .5% of the population uses?!

SHILL. HACK.


#121

As far as I’m aware red hat don’t fund KDE so there not axing anything.

It will either stay in fedora or move to another repo. KDE on red hat will also probably move to the software collection or something similar.

No one really uses it so from that perspective it kind of makes sense to not ship it. They already ship a DE.


#122

True KDE not having a “home” wont kill it. Redhat was not KDE;s home before or now.


#123

Whaaat?? Am i missing something? Am i the only one using KDE/LXQT ??


#124

KDE doesn’t have a home distro per se, but KDE neon runs on top of Ubuntu LTS.

Gnome is more popular, but KDE is hardly dying. Please.


#125

opensuse :heart: kde
