Red Hat eschews Open Source software

Matt has posted a piece on his site noting that Red Hat’s blogs are run out of Movable Type – a closed source blog software application!

This is made all the more ironic when you read on Red Hat’s Open Source Now site that Red Hat is

a challenger of monopolies, defender of public domain, and steward of open source.

I left a comment on the Red Hat People blog asking about this contradiction – it will be interesting to see if 1) they publish the comment and 2) they choose to answer.

It appears that Red Hat see themselves simply as signposts – they are merely pointing the way, they are not going there themselves!
