Vista slip to boost Linux says Red Hat

Filed under
Linux

Enterprise Linux software vendor Red Hat Inc yesterday said quarterly profit had more than doubled thanks to strong subscription sales from its business customers.

The company also tipped its hat to Microsoft Corp, whose much delayed Windows Vista operating system is driving more corporate usage of Linux, according to Red Hat chief executive Matthew Szulik.

Last week, Microsoft yet again pushed back the release of Vista by a few weeks. The latest delay likely will lead to further discontent by enterprise Windows users, who will look to open-source software such as Linux as an alternative, Szulik said.

Red Hat Inc is to increase its focus on software vendor and enterprise developers via enhancements to its tools portfolio, a new portal, and the delivery of its first certified software stacks.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
