INFOWORLD 1999 PRODUCT OF THE YEAR FOR OS: RED HAT LINUX 6.1

RED HAT LINUX 6.1 is the most user-friendly Linux release yet, and its installation and system management enhancements make it a strong contender for the enterprise OS space. With this release, Red Hat Linux jumps into the enterprise space feet first -- so it's no wonder that it nabbed the OS Product of the Year award for the fourth year running.

Red Hat Software has made a consistent effort in each release to improve and enhance its product. This is especially true for corporate environments, in which service and support costs are important factors when deciding on an OS platform. Several operating systems were released this year, including SuSE Linux 6.0, SCO UnixWare 7.1, and Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition, but none of them have had the wide-ranging impact on corporate customers of Red Hat Linux 6.1.

RATIONAL REPORTS RECORD Q3 EARNINGS, BANKS ON LINUX

Pointing to the momentum behind the Internet as the key contributor to its success, Rational Software on Wednesday announced record third quarter earnings and revealed plans to expand its support for Linux development.

On a call with financial analysts, Rational Chairman Paul Levy announced earnings of $146 million for its third quarter, ending Dec. 31, 1999. That figure represents a 34-percent increase over last year's third quarter earnings of $109 million and a record for Rational.
