"Enough with my rambling -- let's get to the point. There's only one reason to upgrade to Red Hat 7.2 and that reason is contained in one word -- ext3.

Sure, there are your usual cosmetic changes, but let's get this straight-- Linux is Linux. You can bake it in the sun, you can dip it in hot fudge topping, heck, you can even add those candy coated sprinkles to the top of the CD, but one thing hasn't changed -- it's Linux. It will, for the most part, always be the same in theory?no matter what you do to it. Now, notice that I said, "upgrade". You can add ext3 to any distribution, so just because Red Hat?s 'touting' the heck out of ext3, doesn't necessarily mean that you HAVE to use their distribution. But it is the main point of this distribution, so?

Am I going a little overboard? Am I out of my mind? (Don't answer that.) Is there more to Red Hat then I'm letting on?"
