RH 9.0 End of Life

Just thought someone might like to know. I got this from Redhat yesterday:

Dear Red Hat Linux user,

We are approaching the published end of life date for errata support
for our final Red Hat Linux distribution. We'd like to remind you of
this date and the options available to you for migrating your Red Hat
Linux implementations: Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the Fedora Project.

Red Hat Linux 9 distribution will reach its end-of-life for errata
maintenance on April 30, 2004. This means that as of May 1, 2004
we will not be producing new security, bugfix, or enhancement updates
for this product.

There are a variety of options available for migration. Red Hat
offers Red Hat Enterprise Linux as well as the new Fedora Project.
Our Red Hat Linux Migration Resource Center can help you find the Red
Hat solution best suited for your needs:

The errata support policy, as well as our current errata and
advisories, are available from:

--the Red Hat Network Team

This is old, OLD news. It's been posted on slashdot for months... As the letter says, Fedora is picking up the public version of the RedHat distro. Redhat's going to focus on it's publicaly traded corperate venture. It only makes sense.

i used redhat 9 for a couple months then just switched to fedora core 1. i think anyone that liked RH9 should be happy with Fedora Core.

Or, if you want to stay with older RedHats, the same community is running the Fedora Legacy project. They'll be updating packages for RH 7.x, 8.0, and 9.0.
