Red Hat releases new hobbyist Linux.
“The company rolls out its newest Linux product, Fedora Core 2, a free
version designed for enthusiasts and developers who want to try out
newer features.” from [CNET News.com]
Hmmm, I think “hobbyist” is a bit of a put-down. There are many other
freely-distributable distributions that are not just for “hobbyists”
but for DIYers. Red Hat is offering a fairly easy-to-maintain and
well-supported distribution – provided that you’re willing to hang out
on the forums and learn to do the maintenance yourself. So far, I’ve
had a lot of success using Fedora Core 1 on our company’s intranet and
on two of our notebooks.
