"Seeing a Red Hat Beta so soon after the release of Red Hat
Linux 7.3 is both surprising and exciting - I've used many flavors
of Linux and always come back to Red Hat on the desktop. First off,
the installation program is second only to Caldera's Lizard.
Secondly, the GUI is usually responsive in most cases. Thirdly, the
software is easy to find. Lastly, Red Hat seems to set the standard
for Linux - until distributions are more compatible, I am content
with Red Hat. Limbo is a major upgrade to Red Hat Linux from a user
standpoint, so I'd like to discuss the pros and cons of this
specific distribution as a comparison to other Red Hat
distributions; this is not a 'Why You Should Use Red Hat'
"Limbo, the code-name for the newest Red Hat BETA release, is
labeled Red Hat Linux 7.3.92. It is evident, after only a few days
of use, that this is likely a BETA release of Red Hat 8.0, as it
changes the Red Hat Linux experience considerably..."
