| The worldâs largest Linux provider, Red Hat, 
| did well in the downturn as companies took a 
| second look at affordable open source 
| solutions. CEO Jim Whitehurst, 41, who

Red Hat Summit: Even Microsoft Will Lend a Virtualization Hand

,----[ Quote ]
| Frankly, itâs difficult to track
| everything thatâs expected to occur at Red
| Hat Summit, because the open source
| company continues to diversify beyond its

| offering. Four Red Hat presenters,
| including Red Hatâs global events strategy
| manager, JBoss product line director and
| two product marketing directors, detailed
| why customers, partners and community
| members attend the event, described the
| typical attendee and outlined highlights

| But looking up today's market cap shows
| Red Hat with a 5.9B market cap. Not too

There may never be another Red Hat but that is OK

,----[ Quote ]
| When you put it that way Red Hatâs success
| becomes even more remarkable. No one has to
| pay an open source software company for its

| one that depends on voluntary code payments
| for its bread, then getting $800 million of| such
| payments a year is pretty amazing.
