| Countering the .Net initiative that bitter rival Microsoft Corp. announced
| earlier this year, Oracle Corp. last week released software for use in

Red Hat CEO: Oracle/BEA Deal is Helping Us

,----[ Quote ]
| Business continues to be good at open source vendor Red Hat despite the
| economic slowdown in the U.S. Part of the good times at Red Hat are the

| part comes from the actions of others, in particular Oracle.
| During Red Hat's first quarter fiscal 2009 conference call, Red Hat CEO Jim
| Whitehurst outlined his company's financial performance and credited the
| Oracle acquisition of BEA as being a driver for Red Hat's revenue growth.
