Red Hat is releasing Red Hat Fedora CORE 5 Security Enhanced Linux this Monday, March 20th, 2006: http://fedora.redhat.com . Red Hat is a major distributor of Linux in North America and their Fedora Project is one of the top five most recommended and popular Linux distributions especially for those with a background in Microsoft Windows or who are trying to learn more about Linux. RHFC5SELinux is quite mature in terms of development and it is very stable along with being highly compatible with most PC hardware including AMD Athlon 64, ATI/NVIDIA graphics cards, and the new 2.6.14 kernel which has better support for 802.11b/g Wi-Fi. I highly recommend that you check it out and download / burn a DVD ISO disc this Monday. I will download it and add it to my library, but I am sticking with CentOS 4.2 which is closely tied to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 AS SELinux. Thank you for reading and do share your opinions if you decide that 2006 is the year to try Linux. By the way, do not forget that FreeBSD is another excellent UN*X clone that is free, open source, mature, and extremely secure / stable too.
