"In the first few months after setting up its first European
office, Linux vendor Red Hat... has been able to attract the
attention of some of Europe's largest enterprise customers. "In all
of my twenty years in the IT industry, I have never seen a response
from the enterprise world like we are getting now", says Colin
Tenwick, vice president Europe, Middle East and Africa for Red Hat.
And chairman and CEO Bob Young confirms : "It looks like, in a few
years time, Europe should represent 50 percent of our activities.
This region has a longer tradition with UNIX than any other area in
the world, and therefore we expect the growth to be faster here
"Bob Young: '... Even if competitors like SuSE or Caldera
make new customers for Linux, it is Red Hat who is going to benefit
from it in the end because we offer the services they don't
have. Just look at the way Red Hat has been able to double its
business every year with very limited resources, with just the cash
we generated. You just wait and see what's going to happen now that
we have the necessary capital at our disposal!'"
