Sorry Red Hat...

As a followup to my earlier post about the academic subscription pricing, I'm sorry to say that the migration to CentOS has begun. I know that my 11 years worth of buying academic subscriptions from you is only a miniscule boost to your bottom line, but I can't ignore the $20 price increase to $80 per server per year. I hope you can forgive me :)

It would seem that Red Hat is placing an ever increasing amount of focus on it's sales rather than anything else. And while, indeed, a business without sales is no business at all at the end of the day, Red Hat needs to ALWAYS keep in mind that it is, in essence and core, an ENGINEERING company.
That said, not cool Red Hat, not cool.
