Just that the claim that Red Hat was primarily revenue driven until 1998 is
third hand, at best.  We can try to infer this by looking at the history of
investment in RH (which they tended to publicly announce) and correlating
that with the company's head count (which was also announced).

Or we could just hope that Bob will comment :-)
