According to the email I recieved from Redhat, this is true. I am not certain, but the email may be about an RC and not a finished release. That email is unfortunatly no longer with us...

It is also worth noting that due to the likely mad server dash when RH9 is released, these people will probably experience an advantage of more than a week b/c everyone else will be waiting to log into the jam packed servers.
