NOVL Secretariat, Red Hat Sham?*
As of 5/23/2007 RHT is a short/long NOVL. I am reversing my position given critical mass/issues of facts over the past 90 days and substantive infrastructure (ZENWorks, SAP, DELL, EFF, San Diego School District, Lenovo, Best Enterprise Security Solution, Access Manager, Sentinel...) . Katherine (Jeffries) Egbert is dead wrong again ref/ http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/02/14/red_hat_oracle_sun_support_linux/ and this may prove to be the end of her day job. Windows:Microsoft as Linux:Novell. Purchasing linux from Red Hat is like purchasing Windows Longhorn from Jack in the Box vs. Microsoft, assuming Jack in the Box was also a Windows Distro. We are at another turning point in o/s history. NOVL shareholder brand equity is at a tipping point.
Let me take the liberty to take a quote from history, only this time "Big Red" is referring to NOVL SuSE, Sham, well...
"...The morning of the Belmont, "Big Red" was jumping out of his skin he was so fit, rearing and bucking in the walking ring, rolling his eyes and ready to run. Only five horses were entered in the race to challenge him. Secretariat and Sham both went after the lead at the start of the race and engaged in a six-furlong duel, clocked in 1:09-4/5, an incredible time for a mile and a half race, and the fastest such time in Belmont history. The speed duel finished Sham, who was injured and never raced again, coming in last in the race. With no competition but himself, Secretariat ran like the wind, going the mile in 1:34 1/5 and the mile and a quarter in 1:59 flat, faster than his Derby time. He won the race by 31 lengths, an all-time record, while running the 1-1/2 miles in 2:24, knocking 2-3/5 seconds off the track record.
"Secretariat is alone. He is moving like a tremendous machine!" track announcer Chick Anderson yelled. "He's going to be the Triple Crown winner. Unbelievable! An amazing performance. He's 25 lengths in front!"
But then Secretariat began pulling away as he ran the mile in a stunning 1:34 1/5. The Meadow Stable colt reached the mile and a quarter in 1:59, faster than he ran in setting the Kentucky Derby record. Alone, Secretariat wasn't racing against other horses, but against the clock, against history. When he finished the last quarter in a mind-blowing 25 seconds, there wasn't another horse in the same zip code. The magnificent chestnut finished an amazing 31 lengths in front..." source: http://www.co.caroline.va.us/secretariat.html
