Red Hat On Track To Become A $1 Billion Company

Red Hat On Track To Become A $1 Billion Company

Linux is basically the first example of user-driven innovation creating something of this size and magnitude.  When you think about 10 million lines of code, there’s going to be many cases where users drive innovation.  I think we’re entering an era where the big info companies are the machine pool vendors of the last age.

In the info age, the Intels, Googles, Amazons, for the first time, because of open source, are seeing significantly more innovation happening from users.

We believe we’re the catalysts for communities building technology in an open source way.  We are the largest contributor to Linux, but represent less than 20% of contributions.  We’re working with Googles and Facebooks, and on the other side, the big banks and stock exchanges.  We’re about 80% of the share of paid Linux, so we’re the most important commercial distribution of Linux.

Full interview here… Which company will be the first billion dollar open-source hardware company?
