Red Hat wins a CODiE...or two

Red Hat has added a few more awards to its trophy shelf.

It must be awards season lately, at least for Red Hat. The company recently ranked as Japan's top IT vendor, then Channel Insider rated it as VARs' top server operating system.

Not to be outdone, the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) has now awarded Red Hat two CODiEs for Best Open Source Solution (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5) and Best Identity Management Solution (Red Hat Directory Server).

You'd think that Red Hat would learn to share, but it seems to be intent on winning everything itself. :-)

Despite these accolades, I still find myself asking, "What's next?" Red Hat dominates the commercial Linux market (though Novell is increasingly competitive), and is taking a bigger chunk of the middleware market. But what comes next? Or is this enough to fuel it for the next three or four years?
