That probably about sums it up. Novell is probably in that category,
too, now, but with their 400+ patents coupled with their new 'in your
face' patent policy, it's maybe not as much a concern for them.
I also vaguely recall some reference to the fact that NTFS didn't pass
Red Hat's stress test for stability (i.e.: corruption type problems at
high loads). Can anyone from Red Hat confirm?
