| Question: What makes the Red Hat/JBoss combination a good fit?
| Donahue: Red Hat has done a nice job in quickly building a business
| model around the Linux platform and has helped drive adoption and
| acceptance as a mainstream enterprise OS. The challenge for Red Hat
| has been the sustainability of its growth rates and the challenge of
| being a one-trick pony. Red Hat has shown nice top-line growth, but
| it set the bar pretty high since it was picking a lot of the
| low-hanging fruit in open source adoption. As Linux becomes an
| increasingly mainstream enterprise platform, growth will actually
| become harder to come by since battles will be fought in
| replacement and displacement.
