"You can't honestly call someone a visionary very often. Bob Young, chairman and founder of Red Hat, is one of the few you can."

"Sm@rt Partner recently had a chance to catch up with Young at LinuxWorld and discuss the future of the industry. Here are his thoughts on tomorrow."

"As important as Linux and open source have become, Young doesn't jump to any conclusions. He is the first to say that to predict anything about the future, you have to look at the whole picture. About Linux itself, he says, "You have to look at the broader trends in society, and you have to look at how your project will fit into the times. Any project's success is 50 percent of the work you put into it and 50 percent how well its fits into the times."
