InfoWorld: 1999 Product of the Year: Operating systems

“RED HAT LINUX 6.1 is the most user-friendly Linux release yet,
and its installation and system management enhancements make it a
strong contender for the enterprise OS space. With this release,
Red Hat Linux jumps into the enterprise space feet first — so it’s
no wonder that it nabbed the OS Product of the Year award for the
fourth year running…”

“Red Hat Software has made a consistent effort in each release
to improve and enhance its product. This is especially true for
corporate environments, in which service and support costs are
important factors when deciding on an OS platform. Several
operating systems were released this year, including SuSE Linux
6.0, SCO UnixWare 7.1, and Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition, but
none of them have had the wide-ranging impact on corporate
customers of Red Hat Linux 6.1.”
