CNET News.com: Gateway tries on Red Hat for size

“Gateway, a company best known for its home computer
systems, is the latest company to join the Linux
movement.”

“The step follows competitors Compaq, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, and
Dell, all of which offer systems certified for Linux… These
computing leaders have promised for several months that they would
configure their own server models to work with Linux, but to date
only Dell offers servers installed with the Linux operating system
as a standard feature.

Also today, Red Hat announced the opening of its new Japanese
office, called Red Hat Japan, which will sell Red Hat software and
services directly to the Japanese market. Following the news, stock
in Red Hat, which went public just last month, peaked at an
all-time high of $96. … International expansion was one of the
goals of Red Hat’s initial public offering, which raised the
company $84 million in August.”
