Red Hat broadens desktop push

"Red Hat will try to reach closer toward mainstream computer users with its next version of Linux, chief executive Matthew Szulik said on Tuesday.

The coming version 8 of Red Hat's software, expected to be announced next week, will have an easier interface to make the software appeal more to home and school users, Szulik said. For example, the software installation process now adds a "personal desktop" option that will "create a system ideal for home or desktop use," according to Red Hat."
