Is RHEL5 the New XP of Linux World? 

,----[ Quote ]
| If you blamed Redmond for late release of 
| Vista (almost 6 years after XP) then think 
| again, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 is the 
| new XP of Linux World. And the same user-
| reaction is building towards it.
| As per official documents Red Hat declares 
| of following a 18-24 months release cycle. 
| Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 was released on 
| 2007-03-14, and it's about 3 long years 
| now, still there is no official 
| announcement. The question here is how long 
| will Red Hat possibly stick with 2.6.18 
| kernel line and the contemporary packages. 
| The present status of Red Hat Desktop is a 
| stable but obsolete distribution.


CentOS, I had to try it

,----[ Quote ]
| CentOS, not just the distro but the process 
| of building a server itself was quite an 
| interesting and entertaining task. Iâm 
| becoming increasingly interested in this 
| area of the linux world as well as in 
| webhosting, I will learn more about those 
| topics in the near present.
| I must say CentOS keeps itâs word when it 
| comes to stability, the kernel and software 
| can be old, and it actually runs quite un-
| smoothly on my hardware, which was almost 
| all detected, but it is stable. It crashed 
| recently though, the only crash Iâve had in 
| the 4 days Iâve been using CentOS, I think 
| it was triggered by firefox, everything 
| stopped responding except the mouse, I 
| couldnât even go to another tty or kill x, 
| so I hard rebooted. But not counting that 
| incident it was above-average in stability, 
| especially since I was not using it as a 
| server, but as my personal system as well.
| So, I guess I understand more now why 
| server distros are better for mounting a 
| server, I can see why CentOS is very 
| popular in that area and I would recommend 
| it as such, even to myself.



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.


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."

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
