Red Hat CEO Matthew Szulik announced the latest details for the Linux software company’s move into the desktop market at a press conference in London on Tuesday.

“Red Hat is bringing Linux to the desktop, launching an operating system for the enterprise that will extend the company’s role from the open-source server space – where it is dominant – to PCs and, eventually, other devices,” NewsFactor reports.

“Red Hat Desktop features basic open-source applications, such as e-mail, a Web browser and office-related tools. It is offered in configurations with either a network proxy or satellite servers, so that clients may be deployed and managed simultaneously.”
