RED HAT REINFORCES COMMITMENT TO OPEN SOURCE, RELEASES SOURCE CODE FORPOPULAR SOURCE- NAVIGATOR IDE
RaleighUnited States, July 20, 2000
Leading Integrated Development Environment for UNIX and Windows now available under open source license
Red Hat, the leader in open source Internet infrastructure, announced today the release of source code for Source-Navigator, the leading Integrated Development Environment for UNIX and Windows. Source-Navigator, along with Insight, the graphical debugger based on gdb, and gcc, the Open Source compiler, forms a fully functional graphical integrated development environment that is used by developers to edit their source code and compile, link and debug their applications.
"Source-Navigator is a powerful tool for analysing large amounts of source code, and it is useful in both developing new projects and deciphering legacy code," said Michael Tiemann, Red Hat Chief Technical Officer. "By releasing the source code to Source-Navigator under the terms of the GPL, Red Hat reinforces its commitment to open source and open source development to the open source community of developers."
In addition to being a powerful tool used by developers to compile, edit and debug source code for their applications, Source-Navigator has many browsing capabilities that enable developers to do things like display class hierarchies and cross-reference relationships.

Open Source Momentum
International Data Corp. (IDC) research states that paid Linux shipments grew faster than any other server operating system over the past two years, and their preliminary figures for 1999 show Linux shipments hold 24.6 percent of the server operating system market, up from 15.8 in 1998. IDC also states that Red Hat Linux is by far the most popular distribution, preferred by 68.7 percent of U.S. Linux users.
Research firm Netcraft, (www.netcraft.com), states that as of May 2000, 36 percent of all public Web sites run on Linux-based operating systems, making Linux the most popular choice for deploying public Web sites. IDC research shows 40 percent of all spending on Linux servers is for Internet related applications, firmly entrenching Linux servers in the Internet infrastructure.
Red Hat's numerous alliances with industry leaders and the demand for Linux-based applications has created open source support from many of the industry's leading software and hardware manufacturers, including Compaq, Computer Associates, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Intel, Netscape, Novell, Oracle and SAP.
