Test Driving Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6

,----[ Quote ]
| OFBâs Ed Hurst continues his quest for the 
| perfect UNIX or Linux operating system by 
| looking at a recently released beta of Red 
| Hatâs upcoming Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. 
| Is it the Linux nirvana? Read on to find 
| out. 
| [...]
| For the non-profit computer ministry I'm 
| running, I would say the new CentOS 6 is 
| going to become one of our flagship distros 
| based on what I've seen in RHEL 6 Beta. 
| Give it a test drive!


The Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Kernel: What Is It?

,----[ Quote ]
| Sitting at the heart of every Linux OS 
| distribution is a Linux kernel. When it 
| comes to the upcoming Red Hat Enterprise 
| Linux (RHEL) 6 release, the issue of which 
| kernel is being used is not a cut and dried 
| answer, however.
| RHEL 6 is currently in its first beta 
| release, with a feature freeze now in 
| place. Currently, the mainline Linux kernel 
| is nearing its 2.6.34 release, while the 
| most recent stable release is the 2.6.33 
| release, which came out in February. But 
| instead of either sticking with the 2.6.33 
| Linux kernel or holding out for 2.6.34, Red 
| Hat is taking a different approach. 



Enterprise Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| CentOS has been referred to often as Red Hat
| without the expensive support price tag. This
| is accurate, as CentOS is indeed based on Red
| Hat Enterprise Linux. Unlike its Red Hat
| counterpart however, CentOS is completely free
| of charge, enterprise friendly and is designed
| to meet the needs of enterprise servers,
| workstations and desktop environments.


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.
