RedHat products page: RedHat Products
RedHat download page: RedHat Downloads

- You do need an account to access the actual download url's.
- RedHat products are _not_ free, you need a paid subscription to use it.

Server based alternatives for RedHat EL (free and 99.9% compatible):
- CentOS
- Scientific Linux

Consumer based alternative for RedHat EL (free, and geared toward home usage):
- Fedora

Also the Redhat and CentOS ( cent uses the redhat documents) documentation ASSUMES that you ARE an experienced RHEL system administrator ( or at least very familiar with the operating system )

the docs do assume you have a LOT of Linux Experience
it is VERY VERY VERY " New to linux user UNFRIENDLY "

In fairness to Redhat it is a paid-for enterprise targeted distribution, as such I would have expected the documentation to NOT be of the "Click on the fuzzy kitten to open the browser to get to lolcats.com" variety

TenTenths you sound like the exception

most of the people here, that post a general question about RHEL have NEVER used a linux OS

they heard from someone who heard from someone that redhat is "good"
A "lost in translation" or " game of telephone" mis and half truths get spread around

the " RHEL is a GREAT choice for running a SERVER or Office"
gets changed to
"RedHat is a GREAT home linux OS "

It is not ( except for certain things )

New to linux users will have a rather hard time with Redhat or Debian stable or Slackware

Something that is GOOD for running the web and fortune 500 corporations and a lot of Offices around the world .

Might NOT be usable and installable by your "average" point and click MS windows user .

Imagine if you NEVER used "cmd.exe" or "rgedit.exe" on windows
then are asked to manually config the network using Vi
or even use yum in the terminal

command line what is that ???? they say
