RHEL 6 - your sensible but lovable friend

,----[ Quote ]
| Another big change in the RHEL 6 beta is 
| the wide selection of disk formatting 
| options, including ext4. You know a Linux 
| feature has arrived when it makes its way 
| to the conservative enterprise releases 
| like RHEL and such is the case with ext4 
| file system, which is now the default 
| filesystem format in RHEL 6. In addition to 
| ext4, the XFS filesystem is now supported.


Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 & CentOS 3 end-of-life announced

,----[ Quote ]
| The company advises all users to upgrade to 
| a later release. Under the standard 7 year 
| life-cycle, RHEL 5, for example, will be 
| supported until March of 2014. The next 
| version, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, is 
| currently in development and is available 
| as a pre-release beta. The latest stable 
| release is version 5.5 from the end of 
| March.



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.
