Just why AOL is in negotiations to purchase Linux “packager” Red Hat?
AOL should bundle a productivity product like “Radio” with their existing hosting business and sell ‘default’ “rss” xml feeds to their installed base of advertisers. Now that would be an interesting platform!

I think this hits it right on the nose. Linux is (to me) a server technology. Radio is a communications technology. AOL is a communications company. This Linux-AOL story makes no sense whatsoever. I bet the Linux installed base hates it, too. If AOL wants to use Linux servers, why don’t they just buy a distribution instead of buying the distributor?
