rPath Eliminates the âPain of Changeâ for Linux Shops

,----[ Quote ]
| Today's enterprise IT organizations are 
| intimately familiar with the pain of change. 
| Under pressure to do more with less while 
| accelerating velocity and responsiveness, IT 
| is finding software systems harder than ever 
| to provision and maintain.


A new Linux flavor for the Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| Cloud computing is getting its very own Linux 
| flavor based on the Red-Hat distribution 
| designed expressly for optimizing 
| virtualization technologies like VMware or 
| Xen. CloudLinux (also the name of the startup) 
| can be installed with a single kernel, 
| operating system, and library, and requires 
| only a single copy of Apache which comes 
| bundled with the new distribution. 



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.
