Fedora vs Redhat linux 9


can anyone advise?
read on the main page that red hat 9 is the last version and would o longer be supported.
would it be better to have fedora as my o/s instead?
thanks

There is more community input in Fedora compared to the old Redhat. You are better of using Fedora, particularly the newer versions coz they have lots of new features as well as updated packages compared to Redhat 9 and below. Also Redhat 9 and below are no longer officially supported by Redhat so you may find it difficult to find updates etc.
