    It is true, I think fedora might. click on the fedora link on the forum header
    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Redhat 9 has not been suported since the end of 2003?

    YOu might want to look into Fedora Core 3, which is the latest free release of Redhat.

    Yes, as of April 3, 2004, Redhat is no longer officially supporting Redhat 9. Updates are given at their discretion, or not at all. Any new desktop activity has been directed to The Fedora Project.

    EDIT: Ok guys, this is almost comical. 1 minute apart?
