re: IBM is acquiring Red Hat VIEW POST

re: I think IBM is floundering. This feels like a last ditch effort to remain relevant. Not sure why RedHat would agree to the deal because they're act...

I was an IBMer for 2 years. They laid me off on my birthday (of all days) last year. Everything about this feels that way, and I don't see IBM ever changing its MO.

The people I see in my social network celebrating this are IBMers. Nobody from RedHat has had anything positive (or anything at all) to say. I think this will be like every other IBM acquisition.


Ya, sadly I don't think this will change anything for IBM and most likely will make RedHat a worse company. I hope I'm wrong but nothing on IBM's part has signaled competence in the last decade or more.
