If everything works for you with RedHat 9, and you are happy,
then I think you should just keep using it and ignore all the noise you
(just keep yourself safe by applying the appropriate security
patches as necessary and using a host based firewall etc....)
However, if you are excited about community projects and want
to see them succeed, join the party. the fedora websites contain
info about getting started and how to contribute.
Eventually (maybe sometime next year, or if your computer use
is focused on a set of applications that don't change much, maybe
two or three years), you will have to upgrade to use the latest
software or hardware and interact with the rest of the world.
When that happens, if you used to use RedHat Linux you may
want to look at Fedora. There will be no RedHat 9.1 or RedHat 10
or any RedHat Linux.... Fedora is the next generation of the
RedHat Linux bloodline.
