Red Hat proves value can be derived from open source

,----[ Quote ]
| As businesses try to bounce back from the downturn in the economy, open 
| source may be an even more attractive alternative. What do you think? Is Red 
| Hat’s $500 million a true achievement, or is it just an attempt to give 
| credence to open source

Russia To Develop a National Operating System

,----[ Quote ]
| "According to Russian media, the Russian Government is going to develop a
| National Operating System (Google translation; Russian original) to lower its
| dependencies on foreign software technology licensing. The Russian plan will
| base its efforts on Linux and expects a worldwide impact. Microsoft is also
| involved in the roundtable process that led to the recommendation. The
| Chinese government successfully lowered its Microsoft licensing costs through
| an early investment in a national Linux distribution. I wonder if other large
| markets, such as the European Union, will also develop their own Linux
| distributions or join in the Russian initiative."
