Absolutely, that's a good question. What fills the void left by the
abandonment of the consumer version of Red Hat Linux? What can an end
user short of funds, or a non-profit organization turn to now that
"free Red Hat Linux" isn't around anymore?
I'd submit that for a more "stable" environment than Fedora, SuSE
Linux, Mandriva, Ubuntu, or even Debian (assuming their new release
schedules work out) fill that void and meet that need for a Linux
system that's stable, tested, with a longer release cycle than every 4
Now, I'll submit (note I said RHEL type solution) that, the above
choices do not qualify :-(
If you *really* want to run "Red Hat Linux for free" then
(IMO) be turning to Fedora Linux.
It's not a question of running "Red Hat Linux for free", it's more a
question of running an affordable RHEL type solution ;-) The only
available solutions I see are the free ones.
