wounded in the line of duty
Red Hat is a organization that works very efficiently doing one thing: Red Hat Linux maintenance. Red Hats user experience has not really changed that much since the introduction of Red Hat 6.0. RHs organization produces very little new software that is much bigger that what one engineer can cook up within their cubicle.
It takes brave newcomers such as Ubuntu and SUSE to drive the Linux usability to levels that are acceptable by real life end users. This is reflected by their exploding userspace. Please appreciate this effort: it's not an easy task. At the moment Red Hat found this effort too big for them to handle.
So, in the end of the day Red Hat will benefit from this work greatly as this work is really something Red Hats organization was never geared to do.
