Red Hat gives Enterprise Linux a new Fedora

Ubuntu certainly steals the show for end users but on the enterprise side it is Red Hat's that is the star, with Fedora being its flavour more suited to personal use.  A brand new release has arrived today, which will give home sysadmins a bit of work to test for compatibility with their current systems.  Thankfully the base kernel has not changed much, this release deals with patches that have been fully tested over the past six months along with updates to the software which comes with Fedora.  The Inquirer makes mention of Ovirt, a virtual machine management program, JBoss Application Server 7 and enhancements in Openstack, all of which should be well received by professionals.  They will also be happy to know that Red Hat's Beefy Miracle has stuck with the Gnome interface instead of switching to Unity.

"The Red Hat sponsored Fedora project serves as the proving ground for new features that eventually end up in the firm's Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) operating system. Now Red Hat has announced that it has released Fedora 17 including updates to Gnome, Eclipse, GIMP and Openstack along with numerous patches."

That is completely wrong (maybe needs rephrasing) - Canonical have made far greater in-roads to enterprise with Ubuntu than Fedora, which is (by-design) incompatible with most enterprise concerns with it's aggressive release schedule, short-life releases and bleeding edge software. Redhat target the entperise market with Redhat ENTERPRISE Linux, not Fedora.

Fedora is perhaps the star of the open-source enthusiast and developer crowd, but definitely not enterprise.

I still have a lot to learn when it comes to Linux ... I try but Microsoft support is the majority of my life.

I polished it up a bit
