LXer: Red Hat Linux Desktop


Published at LXer:

If Windows is a family sedan and basic Linux is an armored car, then Red Hat Linux Desktop is a mainline battle tank. Using the Security-Enhanced Linux subsystem, this version of Linux looks at security on a program-to-program basis and not a user-to-user one.

A word processor, for example, may be able to do basic functions and save and load files to a local disk, but be restricted from accessing network drives or running macros. And default settings can be configured so that if a virus should arrive, it will find itself restricted and unable to do anything outside the security protocols, such as replicating itself throughout the network.
