Update from old Red Hat linux 9.0 Shrike


Hello guys,
I'd like some information about redhat linux distribution. Mz first experience with linux was Red Hat linux 9.0 Shrike which is now more than 15 years old. I know that now exists Red Hat linux Enterprise and that is specifically intended for business users and is soled commercially.

What is most recent personal/home distribution based on red hat linux?
Is it Fedora 29?

Thank you!

CentOS is based on RHEL.

To build on what scasey said, Red Hat treats Fedora more like a test bed for new stuff, whereas CentOS is pretty much a clone of the current RHEL release.

Fedora is the upstream leading edge distribution of RHEL and supported by Redhat. It has a fast development cycle.

As stated Centos is the community version of RHEL. It does not have the latest and greatest apps etc but very stable.
