  • I've recently been faced with a similar problem, "What distro to move to for a new installation?" I've narrowed it down to the ~ $400 Redhat Enterprise and Suse's newest enterprise product at a similar price. The main attraction of the Redhat product is a guarantee of 5 years of security/bug fixes as long as my friend is willing to fork out $89 a year for the Redhat network. I just started looking at the Suse product and the web-based admin tools look very nice. I suppose webmin would be just as good, but I don't know for sure. The apt system of Debian is nice for the more advanced user, but there are complications with selectively upgrading only portions of the system, so I don't think my friend really wants to deal with that. He'd rather pay for a point and clicky sort of update system. I haven't decided which way to go. Any thoughts on this?
    • If it's for the desktop, Fedora [redhat.com] (what will be the free Red Hat) looks promising, with a first release November 3rd. I'll probably be putting this on my home Linux box when it comes out.
