smilysai,
Redhat Linux was officially supported by the company. but fedora isnt.
Well u can think of fedora to be a new version of redhat, but without all the support from the company.
Fedora is mostly used as a test-bed for RHEL (enterprise linux).

Sir...Redhat Linux as we know it will cease to be supported and so cease to exist on 30 April...to that end, Redhat has created and supports the Fedora Core project, the next generation of "Redhat Linux"...there will be upgrades, fixes and patches as was seen with Redhat, but now it will be on the Fedora distribution...as I have come to understand it anyway...I am using Fedora and find it stable and easily usable....in my humble opinion...

Fedora is free no cost $.
No direct support from Red Hat to the end user, by phone, etc, to answer questions.

Red Hat versions are no longer free in cost.
Red Hat will no longer be sold in stores. You buy and download Red Hat copies directly from Red Hat. Red Hat has available direct support by phone, etc to the end user, to answer questions.


Both are open source.


Fedora is a trademark name owned by Red Hat. Red Hat controls the development of Fedora. Fedora should be cutting edge, state of the art with more updates each year.

Red Hat will have less updates per year. Large corporations prefer less updates per year. Some updates will come from Fedora.

hahahahaha I love the little saying at the bottom of your post.

I was the originator of this post....which seems so long ago now. I have since formatted and put Mandrake 10 Beta 2 onto my system. It came off very quickly. I didn't like it at all. Perhaps if I could get a winmodem driver to work with the 2.6xx kernel I might have had better luck.

I now have my trusty Fedora back on and it is still humming along like a ripper. I have FINALLY managed to get Mplayer working for the first time ever. It took about 15 rpms and 3 cups of coffee, but it is there NEVER TO BE REMOVED!!!!

oh and when I upgraded my mouse to a cordless M$ version it worked perfectly.

Ahhhh the joys of OS nirvana.

well... just to aad some salt...

my fedora installation kicked out a different error message every time i tried to install it, eventually when i got to partition the hard disk it chewed up the MBR of 3 ide drives and one SCSI drive (about 70 worth) even on a brand new drive it wouldent partiution the drive correctally.
it also managed to wipe one hard disk with 2 albums worth ofuncopywrighted un backed up songs (i know... my fault... but still annoying) eventually the motherbord on the system gave in and i have ordered a replacement computer (327) this brings the total cost so far of attempting to install fedora core 1 to 397,
verses the total cost of installing windows XP which is about 100 isnt it?

for a free operating system this linux is incredibally expensive isnt it?
and NO i am not going to give up... im farr to stobern for that

Fedora vs. Linux Advanced Server 9

Hi.

I am trying to determine the difference between Fedora and Linux Advanced Server 9.

I am not aware of the Advanced server 9's features well enough but have been asked. I figured you guys would be in the know.

Please advise

OK since Red Hat is no longer support RH6-9, how is everyone getting their latest update w/ rhn? I'm been relying on up2date and rhn to keep my system updated, but now i'm lost w/o it.

Ok, i know stuff from Fedora will end up in RH, but is Fedora its own distro? If not why not?

Yes, Fedora is it's own distro.

Fedora which is free will have more updates and be more current. RedHat is now only sold with full user support, such as personal on line phone service, etc. It will have less updates per year, because major corporations prefer it and it's easier to support something that isn't changing with each update. If Fedora users have no problems with an update, Red Hat will include it in their next scheduled update or when RH is ready to support the new feature.

FEDORA

I've been using Mandrake Linux since 7.2, but recently i switched from 10 to Fedora Core 2. I am never switching back. Fedora is the best distro i have ever used.

ad1das,

I don't see why Fedora Core wouldn't be a good choice for Newbie's.
