Red Hat partners with Amazon for Enterprise Linux fabric in Elastic Compute
Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| My take on these announcements is that Red Hat wants to take its Linux
| distribution clout far beyond the market for dedicated servers and blades at
| individual enterprises, and become the de facto industry standard for how
| hosting organizations, telecommunications providers, entertainment providers,
| and on-demand ISVs deploy all their applications over the next 10 years.

This isn't the first time they they outline plans to conquer and grab Windows'
lunch (not just UNIX). That's why Microsoft signed an anti-Red Hat deal with
Novell.

Red Hat Sees Green

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux operating system that Red Hat's business is built around is
| free to share and distribute. But while it's easy to become an
| open-source distributor, it's more difficult to become expert
| enough with the stuff to make a living supporting it. Take Red
| Hat rival Novell. The Waltham, Mass.-based software company has
| struggled since moving into the open-source software business
| and positioning itself as an alternative to Red Hat, with its
| shares falling more than 35%, to $7.18 from $11.38, over the
| past three years.
