The world is talking about GNU/Linux and Free/Open Source Software
Why Microsoft Should buy Red Hat
Red Hat is growing and executing well. Financial analysts expect Red Hat to hit $517M this year (fiscal 2008, ending Feb. 2008), and $631M in fiscal 2009. At this pace, Red Hat should cross the $1 billion revenue mark in fiscal 2011. Red Hat may well be the gorilla in the Open Source marketplace. But after everything is said and done, that marketplace is tiny in comparison to the total software market. Just imagine a Microsoft that could offer customers a choice of Windows/.NET, Linux/JEE or, and here's the magic, BOTH. The fact is most customers have heterogeneous environments, and those that don't today, will likely in the future.
