'Red Hat demise not Ubuntu goal'

Reacting to a recent editorial by Free Software Magazine's Tony Mobily in which Mobily said Ubuntu will bring about Red Hat's demise, Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth said undermining Red Hat is not on his agenda.

Writing on his blog yesterday Shuttleworth said "this would be a good time to remind all of us in the Ubuntu community that Red Hat's demise is not our goal, and not how we should measure our success."

Shuttleworth said that as much as undermining Red Hat was not an Ubuntu goal, he also believed that Red Hat was well established in its focus sectors, particularly the high-availability enterprise sector, and it would be a long time still before Ubuntu held the same position.

He said also that, importantly, the goals of the two organisations are very different.
