Linux everywhere, all the time
Anonymous Reader writes "Red Hat has revealed ambitious plans to simplify enterprise software development and IT by pushing a single Linux-based operating system across enterprise systems, from servers to desktops to single-purpose clients to handhelds and other embedded devices. The strategy reveals a growing role for embedded Linux devices in the enterprise. Red Hat also revealed short-term plans to re-enter the desktop Linux market, with a "Red Hat Desktop" (RHD) operating system to be released in mid-May. Red Hat had previously appeared to be moving away from client-side computing last November, when it end-of-lifed its desktop distributions."
