Red Hat Magazine: January 2006

In this issue, Red Hat's VP of Open Source Affairs [WWW] shares his experiences traveling across Asia, realizing he's learned more from the best questions than the best answers. In an [WWW] interview with Javed Tapia, VP, Red Hat, India and an article by [WWW] Rajesh Ranjan, Hindi Language Maintainer, we learn what open source means to India and the many people and subcultures. Also, how does the [WWW] open source movement flow in Malaysia...what's the [WWW] market like in China? We've had a very long and very scintillating discussion with [WWW] Cory Doctrow and [WWW] one open source developer helps a nonprofit safely (and freely) house their data. There's also videos on business solutions for Linux such as [WWW] BI software and [WWW] HP blades environments.
