Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 review

Filed under
Linux

Linux distributions tend to fall into one of two camps. The first are those, like Ubuntu and Fedora, that are aimed mostly at enthusiasts and others happy to teeter on the bleeding edge of technology. The other group consists of more stable, commercially supported software, designed for those after less excitement, and includes products such as SUSE Linux Enterprise and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). New releases are a rarity in this category, so when a major new product like RHEL 6 comes along it's a big event, and one worthy of close attention.

It has been three and half years since the last big Red Hat release (RHEL 5), and the first thing to say is that customers aren't expected to all rush out and upgrade. Indeed, RHEL 5 will continue to be supported for several years yet, with plenty of good reasons for staying put - at least in the short term.

Yes, it still helps to have a Computer Science degree, but the lack of one is often no drawback. Read more
