    Shrike Vs. Fedora - which should I use?


    Hello

    I was experimening with RedHat a few months back, and I downloaded Shrike. I'm thinking about messing with it again for use with mythTV, and so I downloaded Fidora. Which is better?

    Thanks,

    Stick to Fedora.

    RH9 and older will expire by Red Hat from next month. (eol)
    Fedora is the new distro that stays free for all.

    would it be wise to just download fedora on a disk just to have incase they just decide to make you buy it later on?

    Fedora is the ' new ' open source distro of Red Hat and it stays free of charge.
    Check www.redhat.com for info.

    Version 9 will expire?

    When I downloaded Fidora, it was in a RH9 folder. Is that the same thing?

    Thanks

    Most likely not the same thing.

    If you don't want to change distributions of linux very often and are patient Fedora Core 2 is due out in April but always seems to change to a later date. You'll have a default currently kernel and fixes to core 1. See http://www.distrowatch.com/ for the latest on Fedora as well as other distributions as they come out for general public distribution.

    For Fedora only you can see http://fedora.redhat.com/ for more updated info on Fedora as well as news and issues/fixes etc...
