"Red Hat, the leading seller of the Linux operating system,
plans an expansion into China, potentially including a partnership
with China's Red Flag Linux.
"Red Hat will begin its China push with an office in Beijing,
then add another in Shanghai, said Alex Pinchev, who leads
international operations and in December was promoted to lead
global sales as well.
"China is a vast market, but one whose cultural, economic and
governmental barriers make it a difficult market to enter. Red Hat
therefore has been in talks with Beijing-based Red Flag Linux,
Pinchev said in an interview at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo
