Red Hat is doing a great job and yes, they are making money.
Is that bad? I don't think so. Unless I read the article I got the impression the author thought it is bad.

Nevertheless, the devs at SL are doing their great deeds by giving us SL http://th166.photobucket.com/albums/u117/rdshear/Smiley%20Faces/th_smiley-face-thumbs-up.gif

here in america @redman making money is a bad thing. america currently has a minimum wage law,IRS,and boatload of tax's.OBAMACARE.COMMON CORE is where american gov now controls our education k-12. my american fu@* goverment hurt APPLE inc. . apple has done nothing but provide this good earth or pool of water with nothing but good stuff. i would say.rainbows. yes. but what does our goverment do ?> they hurt apple. :just for raising eBOOKS prices by 30%. NSA SPYS CLEARLY violate my rights.Detroit a once great city in the north now a stinking mess of rotting shit,As the bankrupt city’s human population has fallen, more stray dogs have been roaming and breeding. This weekend, volunteers will attempt to count the number of dogs as a first step toward a solution in Detroit city-ameriFATS, america the great? ha. . i could go on and on baby.. so i will... what the heck

The (allegedly) moral premise behind minimum wage laws is altruism.
According to altruism, business owners who act to maximize their profits thereby act immorally and must be forced to operate their businesses (at least in part) in accordance with the duty to sacrifice.

what im getting at is that america is NOW communist or nazi,collectivism ,socialism i swear, i am an minnesota citizen #Travis William Mattila come murder me

In New York City, it is a crime to serve dinner in your home for a fee.

America’s founders, who declared their independence from Britain in part because the Crown “sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people,” would have scoffed at the idea that consenting parties could not freely negotiate dinner arrangements on private property. If you’re not free to invite the people of your choice over for dinner on mutually agreed terms, then no liberty is secure.

Are you kidding?

Apple, Inc has done nothing but good for the earth? Apple is one of the worst patent trolls in the tech industry and their devices and software are some of the least "free" as in freedom things you can use. Their trolling has effected the Linux world as well. Apple has dodged over 40 billion in taxes by simply exploiting loopholes in the tax code so they don't have to file tax returns. Because they can afford good lawyers to find these holes and use them to their advantage while everyone else is stuck paying taxes.

Apple makes excellent quality products but they are not a nice company - they're just like every other corporation in the world. Out for themselves and no one else. Gone are the days where corporations had some care about their employees and even their customers. The stock price wasn't the most important thing but these days it's all that matters.

Detroit's taxes sucked but it fell apart because of the unions and our general shift from being a manufacturing economy to a service based one. The cost of labor was just crushing. The people on the assembly line were getting triple the money than those I know who work in retail as managers. How the heck? And people don't just buy new cars every year anymore. No one wanted to take any cuts or deal with the market shift so it fell. But we bailed out General Motors! Anyway, unions are abusive, but a lazies-fare economics don't work either. The key is balance.

With no minimum wage at all, companies would drag wages down as far as they possibly could. The economy would end up with tons of jobs that can't support anybody at all. Lowering or abolishing minimum wage would not create more jobs. People who work crap jobs would have money taken from them and they would just have to stuff it. Minimum wage is in most cases impossible to live off of anyway.

In America and in most other places, making money is still a "good" thing no matter gets stomped or screwed over to do so. Don't kid yourself. Lack of responsibility for the crisis in 2008 for both the government and wall street is proof of that. I will say that the current generation or the "me" generation is full of one hell of a lot of entitled people who have no clue about being personally responsible but by no means should we be worshiping corporations... especially ones who are unscrupulous.

Congratulations to Red Hat for being overall what I consider to be one of the few mostly ethical corporations out there. They definitely deserve the money that they make for providing an enterprise OS w/ support and all the extras they do for it. http://th166.photobucket.com/albums/u117/rdshear/Smiley%20Faces/th_smiley-face-thumbs-up.gif

what you refuse to believe @ jcink . is this:

The broadest fact that few people grasp about central banking is that it is essentially central planning applied to the realm of money and banking. that means the united states of america is an totalitarian state.
i think other countries SHOULD COME BOMB USA. we are commys too.

WE MUST in usa abolish the IRS also.
TERMINATE KILL PID # MININUM WAGE IN USA
