This is pretty cool. As I’ve posted before, I think Red Hat is a very interesting company and Linux is generally fascinating.

Red Hat and the Linux Revolution

February 7, 2007 § Leave a comment

I just read this case for my Technology Strategy class, and it is by far the best business school case I have come across to date. It gives a great overview of the development of the Linux ecosystem, how Red Hat came out of the mix, and the business challenges that face Red Hat post-IPO and that face all businesses that base their model on open source software. I have no idea if it is accurate and plan to do some diligence on it, but it is really a good read. The ironic thing is that the Harvard Business School Publishing is the antithesis of open source and rules its monopoly of the business school case market with an iron fist, thus, I can’t post the full text of the article here. Granted, there are a few differences between operating systems and publishing I guess. You can download it for $6.50 though. Sort of like i-Tunes for business cases…
