Is RHL 7.2 better than 8.0?

hi ,

Some of my staffs are telling me that RHL 8.0 is prematurely released and 7.2 is more stable & feature rich than 8.0. Is this true?

It depends

Is Porche better that Ferrari??

It depends on who you ask....
RH 7.2 dosen't have all that fancy gfx and loads faster than 8.0, but 8.0 looks better and so on..

Who needs fancy Desktop Environments anyway?

All they do is hog memory and clutter your screen! And they don't look that great either!

(as you can tell, I like minimalistic desktops)

Red Hat 8 is far superior to RH 7.2. 8.0 is stable and is very feature rich.
