    Post Which is the most famous proprietory Linux OS?

    The question is not whether a proprietory Linux distro is better than the rest but just wish to increase my knowledge by knowing which is/are the most famous and good proprietory Linux distributions? Please let me know. Thanks

    what do you mean proprietary? do you mean commercial?

    in that case, i'd say red hat is probably the most well-known

    Re: Which is the most famous proprietory Linux OS?

    Of the commercial distributions, I would say that Red Hat is the most well-known, largely because it was one of the first. Note that even Red Hat has a community-based version called Fedora Core which is downloadable.

    +1 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
    Think carefully before executing commands containing "rm", especially "sudo rm -rf ", if you require more information concerning this matter, read this.
    I am an experimenter, give me the most stable OS and I can make it unstable in a few hours.

    I'd say Red Hat too.

    But there really isn't a propietary distro of linux, since Red Hat doesn't own the software. The word is commercial

    Either RedHat or Linspire.

    Redhat by far, though as many stated it was never quite proprietary.
    Linspire probably comes in second thanks to it being on some computers in normal stores here and there.
    Mandriva can technically be considered third here due to its buyout of connectiva and some other commercial distros
