There could not be a bigger contrast in the approach the two companies take.

Red Hat's presser was a webcast, with Ranga Rangachari, vice-president and general manager of the company's storage business unit, making a presentation.

It only worked on Internet Explorer on that Windows 8 box. The times, they have indeed changed.
