"Linux distributor Red Hat Inc. is closing its San Francisco office, laying off nearly half the staff there and offering the remaining employees jobs at other locations."
"Staffers at the San Francisco office were being informed of the layoffs Monday morning, according to Red Hat spokeswoman Melissa London. "Probably about nine or 10" of "approximately 25" employees would lose their jobs, she said."
"London attributed the layoffs to redundancies created by acquisitions, and said the move has nothing to do with any troubles at Red Hat. "This is not a material event, so to speak," she said, noting that the layoffs will affect "only 2 percent of 550 people."
