Re: ES or Fedora

Weeeeellll, these will be production systems. I have been doing Linux and Unix flavors long enough I really don't need the "Hand-Holdng" tech support. However, I'm interested in having a support network for updating RPMS when there is security issues. And I do like being able add a package via up2date and it also collecting the dependant RPMs as well.

Are those thing still available with ES? What exactly are the implication of an annaul subscription? This thing isn't going to shutdown if I don't resubscribe will it?

However, the options availbale today will suit we just me just fine
without allot of recomipling.

So why would take Fedora over ES, or vice versa?

- free
- bleeding edge (less stable, more features, updates can push new versions) - short life cycle


- price tag (annual subscription)

This is the reason I migtated to SuSE on my home systems - Fedora, from
what I've read, seems to be bleeding edge, and I have no enthusiasm to
come home from being a sysadmin to debug the o/s. If I'd known of it, I
might have gone to CentOS. I want stability, and I won't spend serious
money (I mean, if I wanted to do that, I could buy WinDoze.... <g>) on
the o/s.
Btw, the bleeding edgeiness of Fedora is ESR's feeling, too, or at least
it was when we were talking about just this, about a year ago.
