Announcing Red Hat Linux 9



RALEIGH, NC -- March 31, 2003 -- Red Hat, Inc. (Nasdaq:RHAT), the world's
premier open source and Linux provider, today announced the availability
of Red Hat Linux 9. Drawing from the work of the open source community,
Red Hat Linux 9 allows users to take advantage of the newest open source
technology first. With an improved graphical installation, new usability
enhancements and end-user applications, Red Hat Linux 9 is designed for
students, home computing and technology enthusiasts.

"Red Hat's community-based distribution became an option for home
computing with the introduction of the Bluecurve(TM) graphical interface
in 2002. In Red Hat Linux 9, we've refined the installation and interface,
adding new tools and applications for end users," said Brian Stevens,
vice president of Operating Systems Development at Red Hat. "The result
is an open source desktop operating system that is flexible and simple
to use for mainstream technology enthusiasts."

Red Hat Linux features Bluecurve, an easy-to-navigate interface with
intuitively organized menus. Bluecurve has been upgraded in Red Hat
Linux 9 and now extends to more areas of the operating system, including
the menu and layout of the desktop. Red Hat Linux 9 features include:

    * First introduction of new threading technology: NPTL (Native POSIX
      Thread Library)
    * OpenOffice.org office suite for creation of documents, spreadsheets
      and presentations.
