| Microsoft-Novell and a move by Oracle to undercut Red Hat on the cost of Red
| Hat Linux support service, Red Hat has reported double-digit growth in
| revenue and an increase in profit.
|

| open source software,” Szulik says.

| because there isn’t as much of the legacy Windows technology to have to
| displace.
