    Hello and welcome!

    It's not really all that new, as it's been around for at least 8 years now. We have several members here that use it regularly, so maybe some of them will post some end user info for you.

    Thank you for responding I guess since I am pretty new to Linux I am a little behind on what all distos there are out there.

    Welcome aboard!

    Scientific Linux is basically a clone of RHEL. But it has a few additions that are geared toward laboratory work. You should take a look at their homepage fo some good info.

    If I were looking to install Red Hat on one of my boxes, I'd definitely consider Scientific and CentOS as alternatives.
