Red Hat's Tiemann disputes CNet article

Author: JT Smith

LinuxPlanet follows up on a CNet report this week, saying that Red Hat officer Michael Tiemann claimed his company started the Open Source revolution. From LinuxPlanet: "To some in the community, the quote indicated the worst they've ever
suspected of Red Hat, revealing a 'Microsoftian' lapse into editing the
historical record. Others of a more charitable disposition decided to wait and
see what Tiemann had to say for himself.

'I was a little bit disappointed [Shankland] took that tack, because I think
he was focusing on the wrong point,' said Tiemann.

'Red Hat, Inc. is the company that really did start the commercial open
source revolution.' "
