So some how since they are more open source means that Fedora will
suck..? Hmmm. Does tomcat suck? Nope.  Does Apache suck? nope.  What
about Castor from Exolab? Nope.  That's been my point and I'm sticking
to it.  What about many other open source projects?  What about
Netbeans?  I can't see the argument for how the Fedora project vs. RH8
or 9 methodology equates to lack of patches, poor work, and an overall
bad experience.  How about Debian?  It is in the same type of arena as
Fedora.  FreeBSD and OpenBSD are the same type of projects.  Check out
http://fedora.redhat.com.  They have release cycles like most good
projects.  They have nice sub projects.  Leads for the different areas.
Seems like a good layout.  Am I missing something here?  I don't know.
But, lets go to the red hat list for this one.  We've been having this
debate for the past couple of months on that list.  Anyways, that's my
point.  I think I've rambled on long enough.  I like RH, SuSE,
Slackware, Debian, and a few others.  I think RH rocks.  Looking forward
to Fedora. :-)

There is always Debian.  One of the reasons I switched to Debian was how
easy it is to stay current with patches.

Will they still give out patches promptly for fedora?  I doubt it
though....

How's freeBSD or openBSD?

Actually Red Hat isn't just dropping their free distro.  They are moving
to a model closer to the model you see right here.
http://fedora.redhat.com Why not just use that?  You are used to the Red
Hat setup (I guess).  SuSE is a good distro.  You could also use Debian,
but you'll find Red Hat and SuSE more commercially supported.  Depends
on what you need I guess.  You can still download Fedora for free (all
ISO's).  Their new model is a good thing.  Red Hat developers working
with the rest of the open source community.  Awesome.  They're more
open.

Hi,

We are actually using the RedHat Linux Distribution for our developpment
environnment.

Redhat doesn't offer anymore free patches for Redhat anterior to version
9. Free Patches for Redhat 9.0 will stop on 30 avril.

We are thinking about choosing another distribution.

What distribution do u use actually and which one would u choose instead
of Redhat ?

Thanks
