Akin to the "pizza" analogy I came up with years ago, and am oh-so proud of.
Someone asked "what if RedHat goes under?" To me, it was like asking
"what [would happen to pizza] if RoundTable goes under?"
You can (a) go to any of the other fine pizza establishments, and/or
(b) bake it yourself, at home. Just get a recipe.
