Hardware Program Makes Choosing the Red Hat Linux OS Convenient and Affordable

Pre-configured workstations solidify Red Hat Linux as a viable Operating System alternative.

Red Hat, Inc. today announced that their Hardware Partner Program is successfully bringing the Red Hat Linux OS to wider audiences. Thanks to Red Hat Hardware Partners, end users can now purchase machines with the Official Red Hat Linux Operating System already installed. Red Hat Hardware Partners provide basic as well as customized solutions for all users -- from corporate users to government users to end users. This accessibility of choices is exactly what customers want and need.

Hilary Stokes, Manager of Product Marketing, agreed. "Our goal is to make the power, stability, and scalability of the Linux OS as accessible as possible," Stokes said. "Now customers can simply go to a Hardware Partner and buy either a laptop or a PC with Red Hat Linux already installed and ready to go. It is this kind of availability and accessibility that provides customers with the best possible solution for their workstations or servers."

Red Hat Hardware Partners install the Official Red Hat Linux OS, so customers receive the same standards and quality of Red Hat, Inc. products.
