*NIX - UNIX: Dell founder invests in Red Hat
RedHat Michael Dell, the founder and chairman of Dell, has invested a significant sum of money into Linux vendor Red Hat. Nearly $100m (£53.1m) of Red Hat debentures were bought by MSD Capital on behalf of the Dell founder, according to business news site Triangle Business Journal this week. Debentures are loans that are usually secured and have associated fixed or floating charges. Financial filings indicate that Dell's debentures are being converted into Red Hat equity.

*NIX - UNIX: My Workstation OS: Fedora Core 3
RedHat I have been using Linux since Red Hat 7.x back in 2000. I have tried Lycoris, Debian, Knoppix, Ubuntu, Mandrake, SUSE, and other distributions, but I've always found myself coming back to Red Hat. When Red Hat stopped development of its free operating system, I was disappointed, but I ended up liking the Fedora Core series, including the latest FC3, even better. Why do I like it so much?

*NIX - UNIX: Linux in Government: Linux Desktop Reviews, Part 3
RedHat Unless you qualify as an enterprise class customer, you might find it difficult to obtain a copy of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux desktop. Red Hat requires a minimum purchase of 10 units, and the 10 unit starter pack costs $2,500. Individuals might find this to be a steep price, especially when you can download most Linux distributions for free, including Red Hat's own Fedora Core product.

*NIX - UNIX: Fedora takes off as Red Hat declines
RedHat Latest statistics for the Web server market show that Fedora, Red Hat's free Linux operating system, is growing in popularity. But the picture isn't quite so rosy for its enterprise offering

The number of Web servers running Red Hat's free operating system Fedora has more than doubled over the last six months as the market share of the company's paid operating system steadily declines, according to a survey released on Monday.

*NIX - UNIX: With Fedora, Red Hat re-creates its lost community
RedHat Until the launch of the Fedora effort in 2003, users had no direct impact on Red Hat's software development process, and some of those users considered that to be to the company's detriment.

"Suddenly they released Red Hat Linux 7.0, which was a big disappointment," said Ed Hill, a postdoctoral student at MIT, looking back at Red Hat's attempt to keep research and development within its walls. "They would have committed suicide if they had continued with that model."

*NIX - UNIX: Red Hat Aust Claims Solaris on Verge of Eclipse
RedHat The Red Hat 'Network' systems management tool is to gain the ability to manage software distribution and configuration for Solaris, with Red Hat claiming the features are the 'the final nail in the coffin' for Sun's operating system. However the software could be four months away from release.

Speaking with ZDNet Australia yesterday morning, Red Hat general manager for Australia and New Zealand Gus Robertson made it clear that the new features of Red Hat Network were aimed squarely at putting Sun Microsystems out of business.

*NIX - UNIX: PowerPC support on tap for Red Hat Linux
RedHat Red Hat's next product for Linux enthusiasts is slated to support two significant new features, the first for IBM's Power processor and the second for software that lets the same computer run multiple operating systems simultaneously.

The features are planned for version 4 of Fedora, a Linux edition geared for enthusiasts who want the latest technology but who don't need much in the way of technical support.

*NIX - UNIX: Red Hat's Not Proprietary, But Issues Exist
RedHat Red Hat, Inc. does not make proprietary software. Red Hat Linux is open source software. That's Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, mind you.

These two statements should make it clear exactly what my perceptions of Red Hat the company and Red Hat the software are. It's a preemptive argument based on the last time I started this discussion in a public forum.

*NIX - UNIX: Keeping Fedora Ship Shape
RedHat I've started to have a sort of love-hate relationship with Fedora. On the one hand, I like the fact that the Fedora Project keeps their distribution constantly up-to-date, making all of the latest and greatest advancements in KDE, GNOME, OpenOffice.org, and so on available to me. On the other hand, Fedora can sometimes be as stable as Anne Heche strung out on peyote.

*NIX - UNIX: Red Hat CEO on China Quest
RedHat At Red Hat Inc.'s headquarters in North Carolina, a quote from Mahatma Gandhi adorns a wall: 'First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.' That seems appropriate for a company which started as a guerrilla movement among technophiles but has now blossomed into a full-blown conflict.

"Nowhere is that conflict fiercer than China. Red Hat's announcement in mid-November that it was opening an office in Beijing was 'three and a half years in the making,' according to the Linux firm's CEO, Chairman and President Matthew Szulik, a man who sounds like he's ready to rally the troops.

*NIX - UNIX: Red Hat tells Sun's Schwartz to get a dictionary
RedHat Reacting to claims by Sun Microsystems COO Jonathan Schwartz that Red Hat is a proprietary incarnation of Linux, Red Hat's vice president of open source affairs Michael Tiemann believes Schwartz should get his facts straight and expressed doubts over how open any open source Solaris is likely to be.

*NIX - UNIX: Sun goes down on Red Hat
RedHat Linux headware firm "Red Hat" is fuming at the way that Sun is pitching it's release of Solaris 10 earlier this week.

Though Sun resells Red Hat's software, the firms are growing increasingly hostile as they compete for the same set of customers.

*NIX - UNIX: Enterprise Unix Roundup: Picking at the Red Hat Lock-In
RedHat One of the minor ironies of the Linux world is the slight disconnect between the mantra of "choice" the most ardent advocates use to make the case for a multitude of graphical interfaces and the state of the North American enterprise Linux market, where a single distributor has dominated since the late '90s.

That distributor is, of course, Red Hat, and while the numbers analysts produce about its share of the Linux market vary, they consistently hover above 75 percent. The company is so dominant that it's not uncommon to hear less savvy executives simply refer to the distro as "Linux," which infuriates Debian, SUSE, and Mandrake devotees

*NIX - UNIX: Red Hat email scam: Hard target or harbinger for Linux?
RedHat Linux devotees like to talk about the operating system and its various distributions as pretty much invulnerable to the kind of virus, worm, and trojan attacks perpetrated against Windows. The recent Red Hat Linux email scam does not refute this idea, but it does highlight the change in threat that comes along with a growing and changed Linux user universe, which now includes newbies and others who just might fall for an amateur phishing scam or other trick.

*NIX - UNIX: Red Hat hoax: No smoking gun for Linux security
RedHat Even as news of a potential scam aimed at Red Hat Linux users made headlines Monday, consultants and users of Linux and open source were debunking the e-mail that was sent to accounts as an obvious "un-Red Hat" phishing attempt.

The e-mail notified users of a vulnerability in several versions of the Red Hat Linux operating system, and asked them to immediately download a patch from a Fedora mirror site.

*NIX - UNIX: Sun Could Grow Bigger With Us: Red Hat VP
RedHat In recent years, many Open Source stalwarts have given India a miss when it came to evangelical tours. So it was a pleasant surprise to see Michael Tiemann, vice president, open source affairs, Red Hat -- a widely renowned and extremely outspoken Open Source expert -- on a brief visit to Mumbai. In his blog, Tiemann had slammed Jonathan Schwartz, president and chief operating officer, Sun, for his inability to clarify his company's stand on Open Source and making doctored decisions to suit the interests of Microsoft.

'What that gives us now is the ability to tie all these pieces together.' Cormier was referring to the company's Open Source Architecture, which includes not only the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system but also additional products such as Red Hat Application Server, the Red Hat Developer Suite, and Red Hat Network Provisioning Module, among others..."

*NIX - UNIX: Red Hat acquires AOL's Netscape server software
RedHat In a move to add more open-source arrows to its quiver, Linux seller Red Hat has acquired the Netscape server software products of Time Warner, the companies plan to announce Thursday.

Red Hat plans to release the Netscape Enterprise Suite as open-source software, meaning that anyone will be able to use, modify and redistribute the products, News.com has learned. It's a new step in Red Hat's "open-source architecture" plan to expand beyond its core product, the Linux operating system, Chief Executive Matthew Szulik plans to tell analysts at a company conference Thursday in New York.

Red Hat opens losing propaganda offensive against Sun
RedHat It appears that Sun's recent rampage against Red Hat - most vociferously delivered via Schwartz's blog - has Tiemann's undies creeping toward an uncomfortable place. This is understandable in that Red Hat is not used to non-Redmond criticism and is unaccustomed to having a Microsoft rival of all things go after its pricey support costs. Red Hat has become the patron saint of Linux and this entitles it to an elevated position that its revenue and size would not typically warrant.
