Jul 29, 2002, 18:00 (2 Talkback[s])


Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

[ Thanks to Thomas Chung for this link. ]

From the Release Notes:

"Thank you for trying out the Red Hat Linux BETA. The purpose of this beta is to get feedback from testers so we can improve our distribution.

"Because this is a BETA release we strongly urge you to not use this release on production systems or systems containing important data...

"This beta is distributed as 700MB CD images. Attempting to write these images to 650MB CD-R/CD-RWs will most likely fail.

"Again, we thank you and hope that you enjoy this BETA..."
