Red Hat can learn from Milkha Singh

Filed under
Linux

I have a lot of time for the people at Red Hat. Despite their occasional foot-in-mouth periods, they have by and large kept their heads straight when it comes to running the Linux race and achieved what many other Linux companies would love to achieve - a steady income stream.

But now, some foolishness appears to be manifesting itself. Once again, Red Hat is making an effort to be all things to all people and this will end up in the dust.

Red Hat has consolidated its position as a provider of server software for the business sector. It has also made fairly decent mileage with its business desktop software. The growth in these areas came after a period when the company seemingly could not decide whether it should try and cater to the desktop market at large or not.

Now an element of confusion appears to have crept in again. Apparently distracted by Canonical (Ubuntu) and Novell (SUSE Linux), both of which will be sold by Dell, Red Hat now wants to push its business desktop into the consumer market - with a different brand and a few tweaks here and there.

Full Story.
