Waiting for Red Hat
You'll have to wait a little longer for the new version of Red Hat's OS for
PC hardware. When the forces of the crimson chapeau last checked in, they said
delivery would be some time in August. Now, it sounds like we'll be waiting
another 30 to 60 days
Well, if the company really wants to take on competitors like Microsoft, it
might as well emulate its liquid ship dates.
Red Hat is apparently still translating the software for foreign language support
and resolving some lingering licensing issues. The foreign language support
is a huge issue, as Red Hat plans to support its new PC version only in developing
countries, not in the U.S. While there will be no official support in the States
or other developed countries, you can freely run it anywhere if you have a friend
or colleague in one of the countries in which it will be distributed and supported.
Does your organization use or plan to use Linux or any open source operating
system on the desktop, whether from Red Hat or other sources? We'd love to hear
your stories at firstname.lastname@example.org.
