"With little fanfare, Red Hat Linux 9 is nearing its end of
life. Red Hat Inc. is encouraging its business customers to move to
Red Hat Enterprise Linux and is asking its Linux-enthusiast
customers to try the Fedora Project. But Progeny Linux Systems Inc.
has another suggestion for these customers: Continue using Red Hat
9 with support from Progeny Transition Service (PTS).
"On April 30, Raleigh, N.C.-based Red Hat will stop producing
new security, bugfix or enhancement updates for this well-known
Linux distribution. On May 1, Progeny is set to launch its
follow-on program, to be announced Wednesday. The program is an

lines will continue through the end of 2005..."
