| leading provider of open source solutions,

| highest rank among software vendors in Ziff
| Davis' 2009 "CIO Insight Vendor Value"
| study, which polls IT executives on the
| value of their vendors' product and service
| offerings. This is the fifth time the
| company has received the top rank among

| companies on the overall list of IT vendors

Red Hat and Google share the CIO love

,----[ Quote ]
| For years, Red Hat sat unopposed at the top
| of the CIO Insight Vendor Value study. In
| 2008, however, Google pushed Red Hat aside
| with its low-cost, easy-to-use enterprise
| applications. This year, Red Hat has come
| roaring back to share the top ranking with
| Google.
| Could this be a sign of CIOs' restive
| relationships with traditional vendors and
| an increasingly insatiable appetite for the
| cost and ease-of-use advantages of open
| source and software as a service/cloud
| computing?

| figure.


Red Hat passes Microsoftâs stock price, now what?

,----[ Quote ]
| Not since the heady days of the dotcom boom has the
| share market for an open source companyâs stock been
| brighter.
| As of the last Nasdaq trade on October 19, 2009, Red
| Hatâs share price stood at $28.46 with the mighty
| Microsoft in its shadow at $26.36.
| With so much noise made about IT company share prices
| over the years -- Michael Dell said he would shut down
| Apple if he was in charge, but then in 2006 Apple
| surpassed Dellâs market capitalization -- why did such a
| momentous occasion go unnoticed?
