Red Hat: why I'm going all in on community-driven Linux distros.

You asked for it, you got it. Here’s what I think of Red Hat.

Sorry this video took a bit longer than I’d like, since I’m working on finishing my basement (future recording space) at the moment.

Anyway, I’m not planning on dwelling much on Red Hat beyond this- my plan is to move forward with community-driven distros in mind, and recommend those to customers in the months and years ahead. I hope Red Hat gets to a good place again. We’ll see.

Supporters make this possible. Seriously, nobody’s sponsoring this video except you!
