NewsBytes: More Big Firms Buy Red Hat Stakes

“Bob Young, Red Hat’s co-founder and chief executive officer
(CEO), told Newsbytes the investments represent growing momentum
for the upstart open-source OS, a momentum that Newsbytes notes Red
Hat has had a significant part in building.”

“Newsbytes notes Red Hat has become widely recognized as the top
US distributor of Linux, although distributions by SuSE, in Europe,
and TurboLinux by Pacific Hi Tech in Japan and Asia, claim top
distributor status outside the US. In a recent LinuxWorld survey,
74 percent of about 4,000 respondents cited Red Hat as the most
recognized Linux vendor.”
