Red Hat Linux - Certainly the best!

Red Hat is the leader in development, deployment, and management of Linux and open source solutions for Internet infrastructure - ranging from embedded devices to secure Web servers. Red Hat was founded in 1994 by visionary entrepreneurs Bob Young and Marc Ewing.

Discontinued in 2004, Red Hat Linux was the best, certainly the best Linux based operating System developed by The Red Hat Company(since 1994). I have personally used this Operating System so I can say, "I really miss it! It was seriously the best!" it was discontinued so that they could promote the Enterprise Version of Red Hat Linux, called, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), meant for enterprise environments. Red Hat Linux 9, the final release, hit its official end-of-life on 2004-04-30, although updates were published for it through 2006 by the Fedora Legacy project until that shut down in early 2007.

Linux distributions differs in the amount, quality, or type of value-added software included with the distribution. Red Hat, Inc.'s commercial versions of Red Hat Linux sometimes include an extra CD-ROM of third-party software.

When you choose to use Red Hat Linux, you'll be in good company. You'll find many other Red Hat Linux users out in cyberspace or around the corner. Once you learn how to use Red Hat Linux, changing to a different distribution may not be that difficult.
