Segment Two- RedHat and The Desktop Dilema- Or how the timing of the Fedora
release has turned out to "much a do about nothing"

We will be joined tonight by Jeremy Hogan the Senior Community Relations
for Red Hat. He will be among other issues, be talking about the rather harsh
judgements directed at Red Hat because of the recent announcement about the Red Hat Desktop.

Last week on The Linux Daily one of our staff presented an
editorial in opposition to the editorial by our friend Joe Barr, at Newsforge. We love Joe but do not always agree with everything he says, and his judgement of the release of the Red Hat
Desktop was one such judgement. Rather than bouncing flames back and forth, we dscided to invite a representative from Red Hat to join us and give the Red Hat perspective.

Jeremy's technology career spans over ten years, from commercial
production in Los Angeles, to consulting for Fortune 500 companies such
as Xerox, Kodak and EDS before joining Red Hat.

Jeremy has worked for Red Hat the better part of four years (the worse
part was spent selling "Maps to the Stars' Homes" in the greater Buffalo
metropolitan area). Jeremy began his career at Red Hat running the first installation
support hot line from it's launch with Red Hat Linux 6.0, through 7.1,
when he briefly joined CollabNet as Manager, Technical Support. Jeremy
rejoined Red Hat to help build out the enterprise support offering,
working with such clients as Amazon, AOL, HP, Pixar, Penguin Computing
and SGI.

Being 50% evangelist, 50% propagandist, and 50% full of crap, Jeremy is
responsible for Red Hat's Community Relations program. He
was also the diabolical mastermind and fearless leader of Red Hat Road
Tour 2002. Being a stereotypical Gemini, he is both creative and
logical. Yin and Yang, the light within the dark within the light. Or so
he says. This will, if nothing else be interesting.
