I want to install RedHat 10 -- When should I expect to see it out?

If it's going to be 2004 then I'll stick with RedHat 9. If it's going
to be in a few weeks. I'll wait.

Thanks!
John

The short answer is Redhat has stated there will not be a
Redhat 10. The in-name replacement is a significantly
different project called Fedora. Please refer to earlier
discussions in linux-related newsgroups about Fedora and the
issues related to the changes from the old affordable Redhat
Linux products we have come to know and love to the new
Fedora project. (I'm still working on deciding which
distribution I will switch to, maybe Fedora, likely not.)

Good luck.

There will not be a Red Hat 10. RedHat 9 is the final version of
Linux. See the attached message below.


Dear RedHat user,

Thank you for being a Red Hat Network customer.

This e-mail provides you with important information about the upcoming
discontinuation of Red Hat Linux, and resources to assist you with
your
migration to another Red Hat solution.

As previously communicated, Red Hat will discontinue maintenance and
errata support for Red Hat Linux 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 and 8.0 as of December
31, 2003. Red Hat will discontinue maintenance and errata support for
Red Hat Linux 9 as of April 30, 2004. Red Hat does not plan to release
another product in the Red Hat Linux line.

With the recent announcement of Red Hat Enterprise Linux v.3, you'll
find migrating to Enterprise Linux appealing. We understand
that transitioning to another Red Hat solution requires careful
planning
and implementation. We have created a migration plan for Red Hat
Network
customers to help make the transition as simple and seamless as
possible. Details:

****************
If you purchase Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS or ES Basic before
February
28, 2004, you will receive 50% off the price for two years.[*] (That's
two
years for the price of one.)

****************
In addition, we have created a Red Hat Linux Migration Resource Center
to address your migration planning and other questions, such as:

* What are best practices for implementing the migration to Red Hat
Enterprise Linux?

* Are there other migration alternatives?

* How do I purchase Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS or ES Basic at the
price
above?

* What if my paid subscription to RHN extends past April 30, 2004?

****************

Find out more about your migration options with product comparisons,
whitepapers and documentation at the Red Hat Linux Migration Resource
Center:

Sincerely,

Red Hat, Inc.

Go with Fedora. It is not significantly different. I think RedHat is simply
making some think that it will be. The only concern I have is whether
security updates will be made in a timely manner. Only time will tell so
maybe wait a bit and see if others start to post negative comments in this
regard. Maybe not wise to go with Fedora if you have servers exposed to the
internet, but otherwise there are enough options in Fedora's up2date to
keep a workstation happy even if RedHat isn't timely.
