Red Hat to stick to the nerds, no more “it doesn’t look like Leopard” complaints

Red Hat is dropping its consumer Linux desktop. That makes sense, analysts said, because the desktop is not Red Hat’s core strength. Red Hat develops Linux-based software and solutions for enterprises.

As a public, for-profit company, Red Hat must create products and technologies with an eye on the bottom line, and with consumer desktops this is much harder than with servers, the company said on its blog this week.

“The desktop market suffers from having one dominant vendor, and some people still perceive that today’s Linux desktops simply don’t provide a practical alternative. Of course, a growing number of technically savvy users and companies have discovered that today’s Linux desktop is indeed a practical alternative,” Red Hat said. (link)
