LinuxLookup.com: RedHat Linux 7.2 Review (Nov 06, 2001, 23:59)
"There were a few extra features that helped administrate the
distribution quite nicely. Installation was a snap although the
full install was huge. This seems to be a trend in most Linux
distributions nowadays. The up2date GUI stopped working after
applying updates. I wouldn't rely on it. Download the updates form
their ftp site or one of their mirrors. All in all it is still a
really great distribution, my preferred one. Despite the problems I
have discovered it is still a great distribution and definitely
worth purchasing. Compared to other similar distributions it is far
superior quite stable. The latest release of popular programs is
always a nice touch."

creator Linus Torvalds and Linux developer Alan Cox told eWEEK that
they will both embrace a new Virtual Memory manager and implement
it in forthcoming iterations of the operating system. Cox has,
until now, continued to use the existing VM in the version of the
2.4 kernel he maintains."

"There is a huge proprietary software company in the northwest
portion of the United States that got into its current dominant

products for 50 percent of their cost. Linux is simply pushing this
same basic concept to the next level."
