Of course it's more positive: the likeliest alternatives were Oracle (barf) or maybe Microsoft (far less barftacular than an Oracle acquisition but still likely to set off religion-based quitting).

Plus, if you've been at Red Hat for a while, that $190/share against whatever's in your ESPP goes a good way towards salving any potential chapping.
