Re: RH8.0

yikes.. I must have struk a nerve :) sorry :)

Notice I said one of the "few" things :)

Also I failed to mention that Redhat Releases a new OS MUCH MUCH more frequently than Sun does, so its not as big of a deal... Solaris 8 has been around for several years... where I think RedHat has release 7.0 7.1 7.2 7.3 and 8.0 VERY recently :)

I think Sun calls them maintenence releases or whatever... they
release (and ship) the last two major releases (ie Solaris 8 and
Solaris 9) quarterly with all the recommended patches pre-installed.
One of the few things I think Sun does better than Redhat :)

Sun also sells machines for ungodly prices. If Red Hat had the capital and man power, sure they could do something like that. It's just not feasible to do something like that with the funding and manpower that Red Hat has, and still be able to do anything else, like bug fixes, or new releases. Comparing Red Hat to Sun, or to Microsoft is just bologna.
