Red Hat Linux hits $2 Billion

Red Hat Linux surpassed the $2 Billion dollar mark for their 2015 sales. Apparently Linux isn't dead and you can make money off it, who'da thunk it? ZDNet has the full story.

Just think: Some people still don't believe that you can make money from Linux and open-source software. Fools! Red Hat just became the first open-source company to make a cool 2 billion bucks.

Not bad considering Red Hat became the first billion dollar Linux company only four years ago. That may not be unicorn country, but unlike many billion dollar valuation companies, Red Hat did it the old-fashioned way: They earned the money instead of playing upon the gullibility of venture capitalists.
