RED HAT EXTENDS SUPPORT BEYOND ITS OWN LINUX FLAVOR

Branching out into what it believes will be a lucrative market, Red Hat Software on Wednesday announced it will offer a number of consulting and support services for open-source products, including the Apache Web Server, operating under distributions of Linux other than its own.

Besides Apache, which is the best-selling Web server, Linux vendor Red Hat will support products such as Sendmail and Postfix. Red Hat officials claim that about 80 percent of all ISPs use Sendmail as their primary messaging product.
