"The Research Triangle Park, N.C., company, the country's largest provider of Linux software, on Monday will launch the Red Hat Network, according to Paul McNamara, vice president of Products and Platforms. This is essentially a subscription service that connects customers to Red Hat's central office, allowing them to receive all Red Hat Linux software updates and patches as well as news of kernel and other Linux developments for a monthly fee."
