RedHat 9 Stuff

Like many, I'm biding my time (and downloading the ISOs) while the 9.0 release chaos settles down and the first wrinkles are ironed out. And what is a user doing with ?

Why, working with it, of course. Intel hardware is more readily available, and quite honestly, bigotry is not something I subscribe to. And is still the only distro that I'd set up on a production server.

That said, here's the best RedHat 9.0 Review so far. It cuts right through the usual "BlueCurve maimed KDE" crap and goes straight through to the underlying technology and improvements:

  • XRandR (Resize, Rotate and Reflection)
  • CUPS support
  • 802.1q VLAN support in configuration files
  • A slew of other networking changes, including better IPv6 support

Yep. I'm definetly going to try this one in the lab.
