Redhat - what does it all mean?


Get an update on Red Hat after the acquisition by IBM. What has changed (Red Hat is still Red Hat!) and what are (some of) the plans for the nearer future? Will there be an Openshift on z? What about KVM on z? What is the difference between a "project" and a "product"? This session will only be parts presentation, but mostly will enable you to ask questions and bring in your thoughts to where Linux on z should go and how you would like Red Hat to support you.
