Where did RedHat go ?
Maybe you've heard that RedHat 8 is supported until the new year shift
and 9 until april 2004 so will I no longer be able to get RedHat
The answer is unfortunately no you will not. So what do you do.
Well there are to ways to go. Either you go Enterprise and pay for you
professional support or you get the Fedora Core 1.0 which is the new
name of the RedHat system for developers and Linux enthusiasts.
Know you can either think f... or cool a new initative. I personally
believe the last one, because since I tried RedHat 8 I got quite
impressed by the RedHat Network features and also wondering how the
hell is this made for free. I know it was annouced as a demo basis to
have your update alert directly at your desktop, but to continuehave
your demo account available all you had to do was filling out a survey
know and then and your demo account was extended :) Pretty cheap I
All this is not over but being run like any other Open Source projects.
Some guys started the Fedora project and this is the alternate way to
stick with a RedHat like Linux system.
Go visit and get it: http://fedora.redhat.com
The Fedora Core 1 comes as a distribution on 3 CD's so nothing
