Red Hat reported an adjusted net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2001 of $US1.9 million or negative earnings per share of Us$0.01 per share. Shares of Red Hat closed up almost 5 percent to finish Thursday's trading at $25.25 per share.

The Linux vendor met its revenue growth goals and continues to improve operating efficiency, Matthew Szulik, Red Hat chief executive officer and president, said in a company statement.

The vendor also highlighted a number of acquisitions and partnerships made during the past quarter as reasons behind its continued growth. Wirespeed Communications -- a network and telecommunications components developer -- and C2Net Software -- developer of the Apache-based Stronghold secure Web server -- were acquired by Red Hat to increase the company's Internet-related technologies. Additionally, IBM agreed to bundle Red Hat's Linux-based software into Big Blue's e-business offerings.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
