I was searching for a Linux install of Revolution’s latest enterprise version, but it seems version 4 will be available on Red Hat Enterprise Linux only by Decemebr 2010. Also even though Revolution once opted for co branding with Canonical’s Karmic Koala, they seem to have ignored Ubuntu from the Enterprise version of Revolution R.

and though the page on RED HAT’s Partner page for Revolution seems old/not so updated
, I was still curious to see what the buzz about Red Hat is all about.
And one of the answers is Red Hat is now a 7.8 Billion Dollar Company.
