State of the union at Red Hat â Times are âexciting,â CEO proclaims

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâm kicking off my third year at Red Hat 
| this month and would like to take a step 
| back as we move into 2010 to reflect on the 
| past year. In keeping with the U.S. 
| presidential tradition of delivering a 
| âState of the Unionâ address each January, 
| Iâd like to maintain a similar tradition at 
| Red Hat and highlight some of our 
| milestones from 2009.


Red Hat's Open Source School of Thought

,----[ Quote ]
| The idea of open source need not be limited 
| to software -- it can also apply to 
| subjects like education, business, law and 
| life in general. That's the philosophy 
| behind Red Hat's new Web site, anyway. 
| Could opensource.com be Red Hat's attempt 
| at reviving excitement in the open source 
| movement? Perhaps the site was put up in an 
| attempt to clarify the difference between 
| open source and collaboration.


Fedora Linux history tour

,----[ Quote ]
| Last weekend I went through a somewhat 
| lengthy process of upgrading one of my 
| servers from Fedora 6 to Fedora 12.  The 
| server is vital for a company that uses it, 
| there is more than 2 TBytes of data on that 
| machine, and I only had a weekend to go 
| through the upgrade.
| Fedora is a very dynamic distribution, with 
| new releases coming out roughly every 6 
| month.  An upgrade backward compatibility 
| is maintained only for the last 2 releases.  
| So, I had to first upgrade from Fedora 6 to 
| Fedora 8, then from Fedora 8 to Fedora 10, 
| and then finally from Fedora 10 to Fedora 
| 12.



What will Fedora 13 Linux be named?

,----[ Quote ]
| The way the naming works is there is a
| certain relationship between the names.
| According to Fedora:
|     "Leonidas -> Constantine -> <new name>?
|     Constantine is a <blank>, and so is
|     <new name>. The link between Leonidas
|     and Constantine was 'both are townships
|     in St. Joseph County, Michigan, USA.'
|     The link between Constantine and the
|     new name must be different than that
|     link, and different from any other
|     previous link."


CentOS Server Evaluation

,----[ Quote ]
| Evaluating the CentOS Enterprise Server
| There are a number of popular choices for
| Linux enterprise level servers including
| CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, Slackware and others
| including Red Hat Enterprise. This series of
| articles on a choice for a Linux Server will
| compare several of these Linux distributions
| to examine the advantages and disadvantages
| of each distribution. What is important to
| recognize in this evaluation is that how you
| view advantages and disadvantages are
| dependent upon the expertise of your Linux
| administrators and the level of support you
| need to maintain your servers.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
