Tucows Linux News: RedHat 6.2: The best just got better! [Review]

(Other stories by Arthur H. Johnson II)

"RedHat just released version 6.2 of their latest Linux OS, slated to ship April 10, 2000. I, so far, have installed it on two of my personal workstations, both of my work workstations, and two of my employees have installed it as well. This version is more than an update and bugfix. They have actually improved Linux rather than butchering it like some distributions do. The best has just gotten better."

"For starters, the installer ran without a hitch on any of the six workstations. One of my employees actually had a funny mix of Mandrake 7.0 and RedHat 6.1 RPMS installed on his system and RedHat 6.2 actually upgraded everything including the Mandrake RPMS. One of my personal workstations has a really quirkey setup with an external Sun Microsystems SCSI Raid, an external ZIP drive, and a CD-R, and everything was set up except for the CD-R, which is ATAPI and requires a kernel recompile. There were no errors in any of the installs, and everything was set up including X on all machines."

"Overall, it looks like Redhat perfected being the leader in Linux solutions. You can complain all you want about business practices or how commercial the company has become, but after installing 6.2 you will have to agree that they are the leader for a reason."
