| worked as a systems administrator to make some 
| money. Not long after, he took the step to 
| start up a number of Internet companies, doing 
| business-to-business work and web development, 
| eventually leading to the founding of a 
| consulting company focused on helping small 
| and medium-size arts and nonprofits in New

| Sector as a chief technology strategist.

| affect countries, or the entire world. The 
| range is huge, and complexity varies 
| tremendously. Smarter Planet is about a 
| macro approach. It's meant for those really 
| significant problems and to answer how IT 
| can help solve those problems.

Irrefutable Proof That GNU/Linux Costs Less on the Desktop

,----[ Quote ]
| Why does RedHat still provide tools for 
| GNU/Linux on the desktop in individual 
| installations or huge roll-outs? Their 
| customers demand it. If RedHat did not 
| provide the service, then someone else would 
| and might siphon off the lucrative 
| server/services/training businessâ Ah! 
| Thereâs the thing. GNU/Linux on the desktop 
| is not a huge money maker for them but it 
| does work for the customer and RedHat gets 
| money for consultation/setup.
