Red Hat says customers don't care about open source software

Filed under

LINUX VENDOR Red Hat knows that most of its customers do not care whether their operating system software is open source but instead simply look for the best bang for the buck.

Red Hat has a significant chunk of the enterprise Linux market and while the firm challenges Microsoft and proprietary Unix operating systems in the enterprise market, it also supports a number of open source projects. While open source software has several benefits, Red Hat says most of its customers are not interested in whether the source code is available for inspection.

Proponents of Linux have long argued for the benefits of Linux based operating systems over closed source.
