Ever wonder why Linux company Red Hat is called RedHat?
From the article:
In an interview with Red Hat Magazine, co-founder Bob Young said that the red hat has long been a symbol of freedom, with revolutionaries in both America and France donning red caps during their uprisings.
"There is a tradition in western history of red being the symbol of liberation and challenge of authority," he says in the taped interview.
As for the name Red Hat specifically, fellow co-founder Marc Ewing also had an affinity for red hats and wore his grandfather's red lacrosse hat during his time at Carnegie Mellon.TwitterFacebookGoogle+PDF versionFound an error/typo on this page? Help us!
