back to article Red Hat talks upgrades and bare metal with its new OpenStack Platform

Red Hat used this week's OpenStack Summit to announce the impending arrival of its OpenStack Platform 14.

      No, they *USED* to play the long game. These days managers there are incapable, and likely forbidden to thing more than three months at a time.

Does that mean destroying the future for a small gain (or more likely just a reduced loss) right now? No problem, they'll have moved on by then, and it will be someone else's job to clean up the mess.
