Hi.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 is current. WS, ES, & AS are just different options, the main difference between the three is the support that you get from Red Hat when you purchase.

They are all as stable as one another.

"AS" means Advanced Server, but what about "ES"??? what does that stand for?

The Red Hat documentation does not tell me what does ES mean. "ES" can't mean Enterprise Server as its stated as Red Hat Enterprise Server ES

Enterprise Server.

And the question about stable, well, both are stable. It all depends on how you administer it, load applications that might not be stable, etc. Both run the same kernel, just different versions by default, etc. You can change that by recompiling a kernel to suit your own needs.

Is "AS" considered an Enterprise Server too??

Because that also has it stated as "Red Hat Enterprise Server AS"

or

"Red Hat Ent Linux AS 3.0"

RHEL3 = Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3

AS = Advanced Server
ES = Enterprise Server
WS = Work Station

I'm guessing "Red Hat Enterprise Server AS" is a typo.

RHEL AS = Redhat Enterprise LINUX Advanced Server
RHEL ES = Redhat Enterprise LINUX Entry-level Server
RHEL WS = Redhat Enterprise LINUX Work Station

at first redhat released its version by naming RedHat Linux (RHL) then after 9th version of RHL redhat changed its release name to REDHAT Enterprise LINUX.
