Red Hat to Acquire a Middleware Producer - New York Times

Red Hat to Acquire a Middleware Producer - New York Times: "Red Hat, which develops software based on the Linux operating system, said Monday that it had agreed to buy the open-source software maker JBoss for $350 million in stock and cash."

Interesting times. I wonder if Red Hat will feel compelled to next acquire a DBMS or two, e.g., Sybase, EnterpriseDB, or Ingres Corp., in order to be even more directly competitive with IBM and Microsoft.
