    RHEL 6 Beta is out!

    http://www.linuxplanet.com/linuxplanet/reports/7047/1/

    "(..)Linux vendor Red Hat today released the first public beta of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (RHEL 6), giving observers a look at what's to come in the next version of its flagship operating system platform.

    The new release takes advantage of a long list of new Linux kernel improvements for performance and scalability while also providing new technologies for security, management, and virtualization.(..)"

    nice... good quality, stable distro, quite new packages (python2.6.2, kde4.3.4, kernel2.6.32 etc), i cant wait till it will be stable- than i'll wait for its free (of charge) clone, called CentOS

    Yup, the servers are real busy. Try a torrent.

    I just installed the RHEL 6 beta in VirtualBox, looking forward to giving it a test drive. CentOS 5.4 has been super-stable for me since I discovered it a few months ago. 5.x to 6 is a big jump!

    It looks fantastic. I'm going to install it in a VM this weekend.
    Code:
    while true; do echo -n "RiceMonster "; done

    Are the updates and repositories still in Red Hat's up2date, or do they have Yum repositories?

    I haven't touched RHEL since they moved beyond Red Hat 9. I've used CentOS, but not RHEL and I know that CentOS added Yum.
