"To do so, the Durham-based software company this month released Red Hat Linux 6.1. The upgrade, which incorporates the Linux 22.12 [sic] kernel, features an easier installation, a choice of two GUIs, online updates, an update agent, and failover and load-balancing services for servers, according to Red Hat executives."
