Red Hat monopolises Linux distro mind share

Filed under
Linux

WHILE SEVERAL Linux based vendors showed up at this year's exhibition like last year, the only major distributor present was Red Hat. The company's booth seemed to attract even more people than last year.

Even more puzzling was the fact that Novell's SuSE Linux, Sun's JDS and other distributors like Linspire were nowhere to be seen. Small ISVs and others like Point Horizon offered open source based products, like its Pointcall voice thing built on top of Asterisk, the open source PBX and VoIP (voice over internet protocol) gateway software.

Full Story with nice snapshots.

However, the Ubuntu platform has moved forward in leaps and bounds in recent years when it comes to the official availability of popular apps and we are confident that this trend will continue.
