    RHEL is supposed to be rock solid and not bleeding edge.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Hat...ersion_history Observe release 6.2 (zoot) released in 2000, I'm well aware of RedHat releases, thank you for helping others learn.

      You know the difference between Red Hat Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Linux?

      Or what was the purpose of your comment?

        well, the slowest harddisk for the amd system and different amounts of ram.... pretty worthless the whole endeavor. Next time as much identical hardware as possible and the whole thing might start to look serious.

          This has nothing to do with the article, but Red Hat's wallpaper looks so much better than that blob of purple they call wallpaper on Ubuntu.

            Point is: Red Hat does not bump Software Version throughout the support cycle because of certified software running on it. That means rhel includes software which was released in 2010 and earlier + some security fixes.

            For instance: kernel version is 2.6.32 and not 3.2 or whatever ubuntu will be using. Firefox is 3.6. GCC is 4.4. Even ubuntu lts bumps software versions throughout the release cycle.
            Except that you're wrong.

            Red Hat guarantees a stable ABI and development platform.

            They can and do upgrade components. That's not a Linux 2.6.32 kernel, it has backports of important features, new drivers, and bug and security fixes from every kernel released up to the 3.1 series. They upgraded Mesa from 7.10 to 7.11. Sometimes they throw in a new release of Firefox, Thunderbird, Pidgin, or at their discretion, anything else that they deem sufficiently important that won't affect their ability to properly support the distribution.

            Now that Firefox has a long term branch, I suspect that RHEL will give up shipping Firefox 3.6 at some point and hop onto Firefox 10 "ESR".

              I don't get what the deal is with default wallpapers. Those take all of three clicks to change on just about any system (even Windows).
