IBM said Tuesday morning it has closed its $34 billion acquisition of Red Hat, which was announced last October.

It used to be everyone danced to the tune IBM was playing.
Now IBM is playing catch-up

Usually when one of these monster companies buys something well established it marks the beginning of the end for the product purchased.

One other issue is the business partnership between microsoft and Red Hat for cloud services. I don't see IBM & Microsoft playing well together.

Wonder if Red Hat will change to OS/3?

IBM may have become 'famous' for the original IBM PC, but really they were one of the main players in Enterprise UNIX (with AIX) more generally. Their competition was Sun Microsystems, and HP and the likes. Then Linux came along as a little UNIX-like plaything, but then wiped the rest of them off the floor. RedHat dominates Linux in terms of certification/professional education - mainstreams Linux system admin roles in industry and so on. IBM just bought its way back into domination of Enterprise Linux - nothing they will throw away. Canonical has no major role in industry/enterprise market, try though they always do - job market wants RHCE and other qualifications from Red Hat Training and Certification (along with similar training for Microsoft products, and Cisco). IBM just securing their future (bringing back the past) as the mainstream Enterprise Linux "solution provider".
