 Red Hat to Raffle Devices Built with Red Hat Solutions:
Sony Playstation 2 and IOMEGA Hip Zip
 Red Hat Booth #601
Sands Convention Center
Comdex/Linux Business Expo
 Friday, November 17, 2000

Red Hat, Inc. (NASDAQ: RHAT) will be holding a raffle for a Sony Playstation 2 and IOMEGA Hip Zip at Comdex. Registration for the raffle will take place throughout the week at the Red Hat booth in the Sands Convention Center at Linux Business Expo. The drawing will be held on Friday, November 17, the last day of Comdex. All contest rules will be posted at the booth.

The Sony Playstation 2 and IOMEGA Hip Zip were built using Red Hat embedded solutions, including GNUPro developer tools and eCos (embedded configurable operating system). Targeted at deeply embedded applications (such as automotive controls, cell phones, digital cameras, pagers) with minimal resource footprint or strict real-time behavior requirements, eCos is the only open source Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) that is tightly integrated with industry-standard, commercially supported GNUPro developer tools. eCos is highly configurable, making it possible to create the extremely small footprint required by a new generation of post-PC devices with strict configuration and memory requirements.

The Sony Playstation 2 and IOMEGA Hip Zip join the Ericsson Screen Phone, Brother printer, Altera Excalibur DevKit, Indrema Game Console and Hewlett-Packard calculator that have been built using Red Hat tools.
