As Red Hat prepares to become part of Big Blue, its financials look as solid as Linux kernel 2.4

Not entirely.

IBM has long been the home of big chunks of bleeding edge and open source work.

And Red Hat has more-or-less always been Linux's corporate hat.

The two companies have a long history of collaboration: staff from both contribute to the same projects in an open source framework, including Linux itself.

There may be some upheavals, but this doesn't look to me like a complete clash of cultures.

And as for Fedora, isn't that a community effort outside corporate control?
