Network Magazine Names Red Hat Linux Product of the Year
Research Triangle ParkUnited States, April 26, 2000
Continues Widespread Industry Praise for Red Hat Products and Services for the Enterprise and Internet Infrastructure
Red Hat, Inc. (NASDAQ: RHAT), the leader in open source internet infrastructure solutions, today announced that Network Magazine has named the Red Hat Linux 6.1 operating system (OS) Product of the Year in its May issue.
"Wherever it resides, the value Linux adds is changing networking," write Network Magazine editors. "Red Hat Linux has become the distribution of choice for enterprise customers. This phenomenon isn't based on Linux's easy, graphical installer, but rather for its comprehensive support, which includes a free installation hotline, and its many enterprise-oriented enhancements. Red Hat's Linux is the best, safest choice."
The Network Magazine award continues industry-wide praise for Red Hat Linux, including InfoWorld's Product of the Year for three years in a row. Other recent awards include: InformationWeek's "Product of the Year," Federal Computer Week's Government Best Buy, one of Computer Shopper's "Top 100 Products" and Software Development's Jolt Award. InternetWeek also named Red Hat "King of the Linux Server Hill," praising its unmatched technical support.
"Once again leading, independent publications have validated Red Hat's powerful open source solutions and services for today's enterprise Internet infrastructure," said Michael Tiemann, CTO, Red Hat, Inc. "Red Hat continues to receive widespread industry adoption and praise for its technical excellence, leadership and knowledgeable, innovative solutions for Internet computing."
