Question: Adam Holt - Morgan Stanley - Analyst: Why don't I start with a relatively sort of fundamental question -- yes, softball -- which is to the first point that you made. Which is, if you look at the current public clouds, there is sort of a disproportionate amount of Linux penetration, Red Hat penetration under some of those clouds. Why do you think that is? Is it structural? Does it have to do with the breadth of product? Is it germane to the open-source development framework?

Answer By: Brian Stevens - Red Hat, Inc. - CTO, VP Engineering


Question: Adam Holt - Morgan Stanley - Analyst: The competitive landscape is changing rapidly. You have a number of large competitors that would like to have some of the similar share that you do. I guess I will ask two questions on that front. Number one is, where do you see the sustainable advantage over time with Red Hat? Secondarily, maybe comment on the Oracle acquisition of Sun. To the extent that there is another open-source solution out there that may have been undercapitalized upon, how does that change your view of the landscape going forward?

Can you talk about how you see your product portfolio evolving and how you think about the tension between being a virtualization vendor as well as an operating system?

Question: Adam Holt - Morgan Stanley - Analyst: I've got a few more questions, but I will sort of lace those in. Why don't I start to open up the floor?

Question: Adam Holt - Morgan Stanley - Analyst: Questions? I'll turn to two sort of related questions. How do you define a data center operating system? This is a concept that we are hearing more and more about, and people are starting to talk about. What is your definition of a data center operating system? Then I guess the related question is, going back to your commentary about the importance of KVM, to the extent that that is the future of cloud-computing infrastructure how does that impact your existing operating system business?

Question: Adam Holt - Morgan Stanley - Analyst: Terrific. Well, we're just about out of time. Thank you very much for coming.
