Chicago Puts On A Red Hat

The Daily Tech reports that Red Hat has announced that the City of Chicago is migrating to Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It also reports that the city has already saved about $250K by migrating. Amidst all of the stories about political cronyism and corruption, it’s good to hear not only something intelligent out of the city, but also something that saves me, the taxpayer, some money! As for Red Hat, they need some positives after Oracle’s announcement yesterday that they would create their own Linux distribution, cloned from Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and compete directly with Red Hat for customers.
