    Red Hat announced a new version of its Linux software on Wednesday geared for desktop and laptop computer customers in developing nations.

    Red Hat Global Desktop is geared for customers including governments and small businesses in emerging markets. Intel is a partner in the design and distribution of the software, which is geared specifically for several Intel PC designs dubbed Classmate, Affordable, Community and Low-Cost for emerging-nation customers.

    Desktop Linux has never been a major focus at Red Hat, whose profits chiefly have come from selling support subscriptions for customers using its software on servers. Servers never were dominated by Microsoft Windows the way desktop PCs are, and Unix, to which Linux is a close cousin, has long been widely used on servers.
