Red Hat Red Hat announced a new client product, Red Hat Global Desktop, at its annual Red Hat Summit tradeshow in San Diego. This move is designed, in part, to compete with Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 Desktop, which has achieved success in business desktop markets, and with Ubuntu 7.04, which will soon appear on Dell PCs. Some reporting about this can also be found at the company's magazine. Update: Elsewhere, talking security with Red Hat's Mark Cox.

FOSS will win anyway

Red Hat has proven time after time that it is a good free and open source player, maybe they are up to the next big thing, then we will all profit from it. Maybe RH chokes to death on this one, then we lost a good player but their heritage will live on, maintained and further developed by others -- unlike proprietary companies' software.

Short message: With FOSS you don't have to rely on the well-being of a single company and experiments can be allowed.
