It's interesting to me that anyone would bother to do so. IBM has been
an explicit Linux contributor and beneficiary for a long time. All
flavors run on IBM hardware quite well, a mutually beneficial

Hopefully some brain-dead MBA won't get it into his head to try to
make "special" drivers so RedHat works better on IBM systems than
other flavors. Bad, bad, bad idea.
