    Red Hat Linux 9 Forces Stability Gamble


    "Release early and often" is an open-source mantra, but it has anything but a calming effect on enterprise IT administrators more concerned with maintaining stability in their infrastructure than staying on software's bleeding edge.
    In a bid to court these enterprise customers without relinquishing its Linux leadership role, Red Hat Inc. has split its operating system offerings into enterprise and general-purpose lines, with the former focused on maintaining stability by sticking to a conservative upgrade path and the latter free to incorporate the latest and greatest of Linux.

    On the general-purpose fast track, there will be no point upgrades—nor the stability they promise. Case in point is Red Hat Linux 9, the first update of the product since Version 8 was released just last September.

    For a production machine I'd wait and see how things go in the next 6 to 9 months.

    For on a test machine I'd try it and the incomming patches due out soon after it's release .
