CNET News.com: Red Hat to add news to Linux site

“Red Hat plans to create a full-fledged Linux news service as
part of its effort to increase market appeal and potential

“Red Hat declined to comment on any news site plans, because the
company is in a ‘quiet period’ prior to its initial public

“The transformation of Red Hat from the dominant seller of the
‘open-source’ Linux operating system into a software
developer/media company would be a key part of its effort to expand
its sources of revenue. With the site, Red Hat would be able to
seek advertising and sponsorship deals.”
