Red Hat An article at The Motley Fool lays out good financial news from Red Hat: "In its first quarter of fiscal 2009, Red Hat produced $0.08 of GAAP earnings per share on revenue of $156.6 million. That's a 32% sales increase over last year, while profits held steady. But the numbers don't tell the whole story here. The open-source software veteran released major updates to four of its key products and re-signed every expired contract with its 25 largest subscribers -- for 50% more than the worth of the old deals. It's always cool to see the big boys upgrading their pacts, don't you think? Red Hat continues to invest in its global sales and support infrastructure, funding the growth from organic cash flows.

Indeed, I can only say that it is well deserved. Red Hat has proven that it is a true open source company, and has invested a lot in nearly every facet of GNU/Linux. Recently, they have done a terrific job with IcedTea, virtual machine support, and infrastructure for rapid deployment and management.
