    Did you mean Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)? I ask this because Red Hat Linux is no longer being developed by Red Hat. They now develop Red Hat Linux and sponsor the Fedora Project. If you were talking about RHEL, then its more stable than Fedora, but to get any updates and support, you will have to pay a subscription fee to Red Hat. Fedora releases also have a shorter life span when compared to RHEL, but have more cutting edge software. If you are interested in RHEL, you can use CentOS which is a free RHEL rebuild.

    It really depends on what you want to do. For important servers, I tend to go for CentOS because of the stability. For desktop use I use Fedora (although openSUSE is my main distro).
