    Phoronix: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Beta 1 Looks Great, Performance Is Great

    Red Hat this week released the first beta to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. RHEL 7 is based upon improvements and other work that happened over the past few release cycles in Fedora and is riding on its new enterprise Linux 3.10 kernel. In this article is a first look at RHEL 7 Beta 1 along with our first benchmarks of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 comparing the results to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5.

    Does look nice, just wish it was GNOME 3.10 instead of 3.08.

      An RHEL7 x F18 x F19 x F20 comparison would be great!

        +1. And maybe Debian as well.

          F18 would be kind of useless to do a comparison, EOL is in like 5 weeks.

          So I would say replace F18 with RHEL/CentOS 6.5

            Question for Michael

            Just making sure that REL 7.0 beta doesn't overclock the CPU.

            On the PTS/Openbechmark specsheet the CPU frequency's differ?

            -REL 6.5 @3.30GHz
            -REL 7.0 @4.19GHz
            Link to pic

            Is this correct behavior, or a bug somewhere?

              sorry if I'm being dumb, but why do you need a GUI on a server? I guess it's handy for managing virtualised guests?

                p.s. you can grab a copy here without having to go through a sales droid.
                http://ftp.redhat.com/redhat/rhel/beta/7/x86_64/iso/

                someone else posted the link previously I think.

                  RHEL is not only for servers.
                  It for workstations too.

                    But Michael already made a RHEL/CentOS 6.5 comparison.
                    I suggested compare with F18, F19 and F20 because RHEL7 is a mix of those tree releases. This way we'll know which version it is most similar to.
