Scientific Linux - It blinded me with science! 

,----[ Quote ]
| The credits for the catchy title go to 
| legendary Thomas Dolby, but the real thanks 
| go to the team of scientists, engineers and 
| geeks at CERN, who developed this 
| distribution.
| If you're into science, you will, sooner or 
| later, run into Linux. Any serious 
| mathematical, computational work is done on 
| Linux. From amazing 3D movies to simulating 
| the Big Bang over to crunching sparse 
| matrices in a cloud and folding proteins at 
| home, it all comes down to using Linux. As a 
| single host, Linux is merely a machine, but 
| it starts to shine in its hundreds and 
| thousands. 
| [...]
| I was tremendously pleased with Scientific 
| Linux. First, it's a RedHat distro, which 
| means you get the classic Linux usage model, 
| excellent stability and many years of 
| support. Second, it has everything you need 
| - multimedia, desktop effects, Samba 
| sharing, anything. 


Red Hat's CEO expects a rosy future

,----[ Quote ]
| When Jim Whitehurst was named CEO of Red 
| Hat, some Wall Street analysts had doubts 
| because of his lack of experience running a 
| software company.
| Those doubts have been erased by the Raleigh 
| company's performance since Whitehurst, 
| previously the chief operating officer at 
| Delta Air Lines, took over in 2007. 
| Throughout the recession, the company posted 
| double-digit revenue growth. Its stock, 
| meanwhile, has doubled since last March.



Open source needs successful champions

,----[ Quote ]
| The open source industry needs profitable
| champions to demonstrate success, and
| attract funding and participation in open
| source, according to Red Hat CEO.
| In an interview with ZDNet Asia Wednesday,
| Jim Whitehurst said revenue models of open
| source proponents such as Red Hat itself and
| Google, have brought success to the
| respective companies and allowed them to
| contribute back to the open source
| community. Google relies on ad-based
| revenue, while Red Hat's revenue runs on a
| subscription model.


Red Hat pitches x64 virtualization with KVM rollout

,----[ Quote ]
| Commercial Linux distributor Red Hat today
| got its freestanding, bare-metal Enterprise
| Virtualization hypervisor, a hardened
| version of the KVM hypervisor it took
| control of last summer, to market. That
| makes Red Hat a player as x64 servers the
| world over are set for a massive wave of
| virtualization.

| Virtualization Hypervisor and Red Hat
| Enterprise Virtualization Manager (RHEV-M)
| for servers, the company has completed the
| first phase of a server virtualization
| rollout that effectively now puts KVM front
| and center. Red Hat released KVM
| commercially for the first time in September
| as part of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4.

Initial Reaction: Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Servers

,----[ Quote ]
| I haven't seen it mentioned on Slashdot or
| LWN yet... and I even emailed LWN informing
| them... but Red Hat released Red Hat
| Enterprise Virtualization for Servers and
| the accompanying Red Hat Enterprise
| Virtualization Hypervisor products today.
| There are a slew of press releases and demo
| videos. They even had a webcast press
| conference. Oh, and hey, they also released
| all of the manuals too.


Red Hat: We will use virtualisation to target enterprise desktops

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux operating system continues to grow
| in the server space, but has yet to make
| inroads on enterprise desktops.
