Hash: SHA1

New Red Hat Linux's top five features

,----[ Quote ]
| I've been using RHEL and its twins, CentOS and Oracle Unbreakable Linux, 
| since day one, and I like them a lot for business server use. Of these 
| releases, RHEL 5.4 is the most impressive of the lot, for these reasons:  
| 1) Baked-in virtualization.

| Red Hat has released RHEL 5.4, a major point update of its commercial Linux 
| distribution. This version introduces support for KVM, a significant 
| milestone in Red Hat's evolving virtualization strategy.  


Fedora, good and bad

,----[ Quote ]
| In the past few days, since Iâve been spending time at my sisterâs house, 
| Iâve used as single system the laptop I bought a few months ago, with runs 
| Fedora 11. This has been my first time, since I started working in Gentoo, 
| that I had to work with just a laptop (if you exclude the hospitalisations) 
| and especially the first time since I started using Gentoo that I had to work 
| with just another Linux distribution.

| already been working on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 and today a few details
| regarding this next major feature release were learned during the Red Hat
| Summit in Chicago. Details regarding RHEL 6.0 are scant, especially with Red
| Hat being a public company and all, but some new information was gained today
| and some signals of what's coming down the pipe can already be spotted in
| Fedora.

Red Hat's standalone hypervisor goes beta

| Commercial Linux distributor Red Hat threw its, er, red hat into the
| virtualization ring back in February when it announced it was creating a
| standalone Enterprise Virtualization hypervisor based on KVM to compete with
| the likes of VMware, Microsoft, and Citrix Systems. Today, that standalone
| hypervisor and the tools to manage it for servers and desktops moved into

Red Hat makes KVM its Linux virtualization of choice

,----[ Quote ]
| Despite Red Hatâs surprising announcement last week that it would be
| partnering with Microsoft on virtualization, on February 23rd, Red Hatâs
| announced that it would be switching its virtualization strategy from a mix
| of virtualization programs, including the Microsoft-friendly Xen, to focusing
| on Linuxâs baked-in KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine)
| KVM, as Red Hat CTO Brian Stevens admitted during a press call, is still a
| work in progress. But, Stevens assured the audience, by working with IBM and
| Intel, Red Hat will be able to deliver its full Red Hat Virtualization
| portfolio within the next 12-months. The first fruits of this switch will
| appear in RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) 5.4, which is due out in August
| 2009.

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat will be in a position to offer Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM), the open
| source virtualisation it garnered with the acquisition of Qumranet, in the
| first half of 2009.
| Asked by CBR when Red Hat will be able to offer the KVM technology as part of
| Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the firmâs president and CEO Jim Whitehurst said it
| is âhighly likelyâ that it would be during calendar 2009 but would not be
| drawn further.
