Red Hat got plenty of toys, which made the propeller heads in the lab
happy as baby goats. Now that Ubuntu rules the cheap seats for Linux
users, and has beaten Red Hat like a white mouth mule for that market
segment, they might as well get all the free stuff and have some fun
slapping stickers on the kit that manages to show some sort of life and
interoperability with Ubuntu Brand Linux. I'd slap one on my computer
for starts. ASUS makes a decent motherboard.
I'll be damned, don't say google isn't my friend.
There it is! But, it seems only for complete systems and not individual
components. Ah well... I don't see a valuable sticker or decoder ring
offered either. :( Ric
