  1. [News] Travelocity's parent company hails Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5


    Sabre Holdings Corp., the $3 billion online network best known for
    Travelocity, has adopted Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) as the
    corporate standard for its global ticketing and airline services
    businesses and will implement RHEL 5 in all future acquisitions.

    Robert Wiseman, Sabre's chief technology officer, said the Southlake,
    Texas-based company began using Red Hat and other open source software
    about 2004. Red Hat now runs mission-critical online systems that
    collectively process as many as 32,000 transactions per second from
    three data centers in Tulsa, Okla., and one in Texas, he said.

    Article goes on to say that a major motivation in use of OSS was the
    ability to access and change the software.

    If Linux crashes (or is it freezes?) every 3 minutes like DFS says,
    why do $3 billion corporations use it?

    They don't run it on a $3 'DFS configuaration'.

    Because Travelocity likes the Gnome?
