I'm excited that there seems to be an increased interest in open source in the broader corporate world. I like the way Jacks puts it.
IBM buying @RedHat is not about dominating the cloud. It is about becoming an OSS company. The largest proprietary software and tech companies in the world are now furiously rushing towards the future. An open future. An open source software driven future. OSS eats everything.

IBM is already a big OSS contributor, IBM is also big opening up internal projects and giving them to the OSS community. Where the likes of RedHat start to contribute to it.
So IBM buying RedHat to get into the OSS market makes little sense to me.
Maybe it's less of an attempt to enter the market, since you're saying they're already there, and more to expand in it.
