Ubuntu won’t kill Red Hat

According to this post (http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com/articles/editorial_13), the author arugues that Ubuntu will kill off Red Hat.  I disagree for some of the same reasons that were posted in this article on slashdot, http://linux.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=06/08/02/0238233), Red Hat is well known in corporate America and no one has heard of “that funny named Linux distro.”  So will it happen?  I don’t think so, I think people will stick w/ the “enterprise” solution of Red Hat.  Part of the reason is that major vendors don’t work w/ Ubuntu they work w/ Red Hat instead.  A brief example would be Altiris.  It works w/ .rpms only.  Also VM Ware Tools have rpms instead of .debs.
