Question Redhat or Fedora?


Could anyone tell me the difference between the two?

Im running RH9 now, but whats different about fedora. I read some info but dont understand what redhat is trying to do.

PS: Does fedora has the latest php ,mysql, apache versions? or is it the same as rh9?

There is a fedora specific forum here at LQ. you should look around and read up, also a RH specific forum. Also fedora.redhat.com lists all packages. Further, distrowatch has the major packages and thier respective version numbers for various releases. Good Luck

This is from the Fedora web site:

Quote:
The Fedora Project is a Red-Hat-sponsored and community-supported open source project. It is also a proving ground for new technology that may eventually make its way into Red Hat products.
It sounds to me like RH management is thinking "Why should we have a full-blown R & D department when we can exploit the "open source community" and use unpaid volunteer programmers to develop our products for free? We can then turn around and sell those products to our 'enterprise' customers for beaucoup bucks."

Just my opinion.

I've recently upgraded to Fedora Core 1 and found it to be much faster than Redhat 9, when running on a multi-threaded processor like the Xeon. Don't know about improvements when using other processors like the P4. Pretty much the same RPMs are included as RH9, and you can update them like before.
