Rhel price


Hello,

I would learn more about Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Now, I've got a serial for students since i did a course and i felt in love, but i can't understand to pay Red Hat if it's expensive or not.

My system would be an "home" system (i know it's not the proper use but i rather rack my brain in this way) but i could use one day for net use (for example testing an smtp or ftp server)

I can't understand very well if a single-license price it's 50 $ about or not.
Furthermore i would like test some virtualization but i don't know if red hat virtualization tools will be expensive.

Any suggestion?

My target is :

1. learn red hat for passion
2. publish a server on the internet (ftp, smtp, web server ecc.)
3. test a virtualization system for my home space with some virtualization stuff in Red Hat (i still don't know anything about that, though)

Thank you

Davide

stick with CentOS. You won't benefit from RedHat in this situation.

I know but I'm stubborn. I don't care about benefit, i care about learning red hat. I know it's the same and i hope you won't consider me as a dumbass for that because i've my own personal reason that would be too long to explain.

Either

1. use Centos instead (its effectively identical and FREE)

Or

2. phone RH and ask your qns there; much faster and more accurate/up to date

Red Hat has some very good features that are not included in open sourced versions. For your money you would also get faster updates and a support staff.

If you like it that much then you need to purchase some form of their product.

why useless? Plenty of people buy redhat, just very rarely for home use.

"When the answer is obvious, who ask for is lazy and don't deserve a reply."

It was my fault, i just didn't think too much about that. Contact rhel was the first thing.
