"ingapore is pivotal in its expansion plans -- the company chairman told BizIT in an interview. "Singapore is not as important as a market because it has a small population, but its role as a sort of clearing house for the region makes it pivotal to our plans," said the company's chairman and co-founder, Robert Young. Instead of his signature red fedora, this time he wore a red baseball cap, even during the interview. Mr Young was in Singapore for the LinuxWorld 2000 Exposition...."
"Mr Young also met Singapore's Minister for Communications, Yeo Cheow Tong, during his visit. "I came away very impressed with Singapore after meeting Mr Yeo," he said. "Red Hat would like to talk to the local universities about developing Linux courses -- and assure them that this technology will also help students earn a living."
