Streaming Media software publisher RealNetworks has announced it is bundling its G2 RealServer 7.0 and media player with Red Hat Linux Enterprise Server for $2,995 (about $800 less than the two items separately). The bundle is aimed at both corporate enterprise and Internet Service Provider (ISP) markets. G2 Server can serve up streaming audio, streaming video and 18 other types of multimedia content, and can handle up to 60 simultaneous streams.

RealNetworks' Ben Rotholtz stated that their server product runs on Windows 2000, Sun's Solaris and Linux, and that Linux is the fastest growing platform.

RealNetworks was founded by a former Microsoft executive and was closely allied to Microsoft until Microsoft discovered they were selling a lot of product. Microsoft then came out with their own "almost as good, but free" version, and has since been accused of sabotaging RealNetworks' product.
