questions about fedora project


i read somewhere that fedora is unofficial version of rh10. since redhat doesn't support rh9 anymore, if i switch to fedora, will i be able to get the "offical" updates from redhat?

Official updates are going away. They are only focusing on their Enterprise editions, etc. Hence the reason they have handed the desktop to Fedora, etc.

True, but with Fedora you should still be able to keep your system up2date using Fedora's YUM repository and the same up2date tool that was included in RH9.

i haven't purchased the Enterprise edition yet but i am considering it. as far as i know redhat is still catering for the desktop user.

RHEL (RedHat Enterprise Linux) is all they will be supporting after April this year. All versions up until 9 are not supported, 9's support ends in April.

Desktop users will either have to just update their system by other means to keep Redhat or migrate to Fedora or any other distro.

Cheers.
