Red Hat Still Doesn't Need Desktop Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| In a conversation with MSPmentor, a the 
| recent Red Hat Partner Summit, CEO Jim 
| Whitehurst clearly said that his company is 
| not pinning its fortunes on desktop Linux. 
| He made clear that Red Hat will continue to 
| develop and support its desktop Linux 
| offering, but won't make a substantial push 
| with it.


Interview with Karanbir Singh, CentOS project

,----[ Quote ]
| CentOSKaranbir Singh CentOS, a Linux 
| distribution built by compiling the source 
| packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 
| (RHEL), has emerged as the most popular 
| RHEL clone available today. Although often 
| perceived as an operating system for 
| mission-critical servers where stability 
| and dependability are far more important 
| than cutting-edge features, CentOS can be 
| used in other deployment scenarios, 
| including specialist servers or development 
| workstations. Today we talk to Karanbir 
| Singh (pictured on the right), a CentOS 
| developer, about the reasons behind the 
| project's continued success, attempt a 
| comparison of CentOS with other similar 
| distributions and enterprise operating 
| systems, and describe the process of 
| building CentOS from the source code that 
| Red Hat makes available with every new 
| release.



CentOS Goes Commercial

,----[ Quote ]
| Network monitoring vendor GroundWork announced
| its new GroundWork Monitor Enterprise
| Quickstart Virtual Appliance based on CentOS
| and including commercial support from
| OpenLogic. The move marks the first time that
| OpenLogic has done an appliance support
| contract for CentOS, which could potentially
| lead to further growth in the CentOS installed
| base.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
