, Red Hat
, and Xandros
... and you know what? They've done damn well, even surviving near extinction at one point when they filed "declaration de cessation des paiements" which is the French equivalent of Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the USA. How does the future of their desktop look? Stick around. We're about to find out...
