Red Hat plans Linux push in China

Red Hat, the leading seller of the Linux operating system, plans an expansion into China, potentially including a partnership with China's Red Flag
Linux.

Red Hat will begin its China push with an office in Beijing, then add another in Shanghai, said Alex Pinchev, who leads international operations and
in December was promoted to lead global sales
as well.

China is a vast market, but one whose cultural, economic and governmental barriers make it a difficult market to enter. Red Hat therefore has been in
talks with Beijing-based Red Flag Linux, Pinchev said in an interview at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo
here.
