Red Hat Integrates and Simplifies with RHEL 5
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

As a provider of open source operating systems, middleware, and development tools, Red Hat talks a lot about how the open source movement is changing the very nature of enterprise computing.

The Feeds and Speeds of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

While Red Hat, like many other operating system and more complete software stack providers, wants to pitch the latest release of its software as a major change in packaging that will broaden the appeal of its products, the fact remains that for many customers, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 is a new and substantially improved operating system that will be sold on its own merits of features, performance, and price compared to alternatives.

Mad Dog 21/21: The China Spin Drone
by Hesh Wiener

At 3 p.m. on February 27, the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which was falling in sympathy with a meltdown on the Shanghai exchange, seemed to drop off a cliff.
