JBoss bought by RedHat

Wow. I guess after months of speculation and crazy rumours it was inevitable that it was going to happen, but news this morning is that RedHat have bought JBoss for $350 million, 40% cash and 60% RedHat stock.</a

At least RedHat is more aligned to the open source model that JBoss was a major advocate for, and I expect not much will change with the JBoss product lineup for a while. I suspect this acquisition will be a relief compared to what might have happened to the company should someone like Oracle have bought the company, as was rumoured a couple of months ago.

Good luck to the new combined organization.
