As the contributing reader points out, this is a very positive article, looking briefly at Red Hat used in several contexts: end user desktop, back-end database serving, and DNS/Web tasks. It's not so much a review as it is a series of positive assertions about Red Hat's usability across several levels of business use.

"Red Hat Linux 7.1 compares favorably to rival solutions such as Windows 9x and Me, Windows NT, and Windows 2000. Even after factoring in the cost of software licensing, training, support, and administration, Red Hat Linux lowers the investment needed to maintain server and end-user systems.

This release improves the cost/benefit ratio in several respects. It's easier to install and use than Version 7.0, provides better support for laptops, adds new support for USB devices, and works with larger memory sizes and multiprocessor systems."
