IBM buying Red Hat for $34 Billion is the biggest deal in the history of open source. In June, Microsoft bought the open source software repository GitHub for $7.5 billion. And Now IBM has decided to go one better and fork out $34 Billion to buy another open source stalwart, Red Hat – the biggest deal ever in the open source community. IBM will pay cash to buy all shares in Red Hat at $190 each. Shares in Red Hat closed at $116.68 on Friday before the deal was announced.
