Yeah, it's certainly a case of interesting times.  At least they do say:


# Upon closing of the acquisition, Red Hat will join IBM's Hybrid Cloud team
# as a distinct unit, preserving the independence and neutrality of Red Hat's
# open source development heritage and commitment, current product
# portfolio and go-to-market strategy, and unique development culture.
# Red Hat will continue to be led by Jim Whitehurst and Red Hat's current
# management team. Jim Whitehurst also will join IBM's senior management
# team and report to Ginni Rometty. IBM intends to maintain Red Hat's
# headquarters, facilities, brands and practices.

So (at least at first) it seems they intend to stay pretty hands off,
which I think is a good thing.   Fingers crossed for the future..

All the best,
