After June 30, I would expect, I think Red Hat will sport its own 'open-commuity' version of the required XML technology through IBM by which it will be putting these operating systems to work (they don't need a GUI if they function machine to machine - the human needs a GUI and may carry her own - GUI security is the most vulnerable point of the system).
