Red Hat are going to drop support for their free products and continue with their 'Enterprise Linux'.
Fedora is a distro that was based on RedHat. Now it is working closely with RedHat to develop and continue RedHat's free distro - just under a new name - and with support from RedHat.
Basically - Fedora Core 1 = Red Hat 10.
I just installed Fedora 1 on my Sony Laptop. I find the GUI a little upscale from past Red Hats but the eye candy aside, I could not make any real distintions between Red Hat 9 and Fedora 1. I was able to use up2date and they had a Fedora patch already in the queue. I downloaded apt for RedHat 9 and it works just fine for Fedora. So, the long winded answer is as was noted prior, Fedora 1 = Red Hat either 9.1 or 10.
Distribution: Fedora Core 2, SuSE 9.1 Professional
"Not revolutionary, but evolutionary" in the explaination on the fedora.redhat site.
I would recommend anyone using Fedora read the ENTIRE site which pretty much explains everything as far as the philosophy of it goes.
This issue, Fedora 1 is pretty much like everyone on this thread said...an updated Red Hat 9.
I have noticed several improvements...it seems a little faster for one.
But the really exciting thing to me is that it is STILL free and no matter what the wording, it IS supported...just not "officially" and by Red Hat directly. It's supported by the community.
Also, the next release will be more revolutionary...because it is planned to use the 2.6 kernel. This will be fun.
I have been running Fedora 1 since the day it came out....and have had NOT A SINGLE
problem....so I feel confident using it with my work stuff. I will NOT update it with Rawhide or testing software...only the "official" released updates and "stable" packages from whatever repository I am using (only redhat's yum, fedora.us apt and livna.org apt repositories now.
The rest of the software, I usually build from sourse as I have found more control
this way over RPM's.
So....wait 'til Fedora 2 if you want something really different!
