"Open-source companies that rely on providing support for revenue rather than software licenses are hoping to make more money with online services such as the Red Hat Network."

"Red Hat Network, which was announced Monday, helps Linux customers maintain and upgrade their systems, tasks which typically are difficult and costly, particularly given the rapid pace of open-source development. Red Hat will use its new network either to notify customers about new software versions or upgrades or to install them automatically and remotely over the Internet...."

"Red Hat is offering Red Hat Network as a subscription service, charging fees of $9.95 per month for individuals, $400 per year per system for small businesses and $500 per year per system for large corporations. Unlike similar services from companies that offer proprietary software, Red Hat Network supports Linux systems across all platforms running all types of applications."
