IDG’s InfoWorld Announces Winners of Annual Product of the Year Awards

Red Hat Linux and open-source developers are prominent
winners.

“The InfoWorld Test Center reviewed thousands of products and
solutions during 1998. Those products that scored a 7.0 or higher
(out of 10.0) in a Test Center Comparison or were rated “excellent”
or “very good” in a standalone review qualified for Product of the
Year consideration.”

“This year, InfoWorld expanded the Product of the Year issue to
also highlight the technologies, people and products that made a
significant impact in 1998,” said Sandy Reed, editor in chief of
InfoWorld. “As always, our readers played a role in these awards
and, this year, nominated candidates for the eight awards bestowed
by our columnists.”
