Arch Linux Gets Honours, Red Hat Receives Positive Recommendation
The voting is all done for the second round of our poll to decide which GNU/Linux distro our readers would choose to receive our “Reader’s Choice Best Linux Distro” award for 2015. As in round one, Arch Linux won the day. The poll results are considered to be more a measure of a distro’s community support than any indication of a distro’s technical merits.
The first round of our poll was a qualifying round, which Arch won as well, racking up 1,376 votes. The second round of voting was “winner take all,” and with the voting lighter than in the first round, Arch still managed to put together 592 votes. In all, 2,625 votes were cast in round two, which was active for seven days.
Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE:RHT) has received a consensus one-year price recommendation of $90.50 by sell-side analysts.

The same set of brokerage firms have projected an earnings per share of $0.50 for the company during the upcoming quarter and an EPS of $1.86 for the current year.
