Oh, and typical of slashdot, it appears the submitter didn't RTFA.

Considering our goals listed above, our desktop product plans for 2008 and 2009 include:

* Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop. This is our fully supported, commercial product. It is 100 percent compatible with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux server products. Its focus is to provide a desktop environment that is secure and easily managed. And it is upgradeable with the Multi-OS option (which provides virtualization support) or the Workstation option (which provides high-end workstation capabilities).
* Fedora. This is a Red Hat sponsored, fast-growing, free product. While Red Hat doesn’t formally support Fedora, users can turn to a healthy online community to obtain help when they need it.
* Red Hat Global Desktop (RHGD). Plans for this product were originally announced at the 2007 Summit Conference. It is designed exclusively for small, reseller supplied, deployments in emerging markets (e.g. primarily the BRIC countries), and will be supplied by a number of Intel channel partners.

We recently discussed the Linux Foundation's decision to leave desktop Linux alone but Red Hat is also steering clear of that goal. The reason? It's too tough.


I guess "steering clear of that goal" means to him just doing an Enterprise desktop, a global desktop, and fedora. Merely that...

No, it's a follow up to a previous announcement that said RedHat was going to pursue a commercial desktop product for sale.

Fedora is where RedHat server comes from, so you can bet it will be around.

It's just unlikely RedHat will pump any money into the desktop part of development.

That's just wrong. Read the above, they are still doing:

* Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop

* Red Hat Global Desktop (RHGD)

That will take lots of resources. Plus if you look at the changelogs of many desktop projects, a huge example being gnome, there are plenty of @redhat's there. They are doing lots on the desktop and will continue to do so.
