    This is what Redhat is saying in a email:

    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.

    I don't know but I think it is time to think about installing some other OS now. Nick I hope you read this and will advice, because I don't know what to do. I know the Trustix is a real good distrubution - but it is only a beta install and since it depend a lot on RedHat I don't know how it will be. Also Trustix is bankrupt andI don't know. FreeBSD might be the best option and it is not managed by some corperation, even that BSDi is involved as far as I know.

    Nick what are my best option? What will cpanel do about this? Will you maybe put more attention now on FreeBSD as well as moving over to the commercial RedHat?

    I would really like to run the Enterprise ES edition personally, the basic version is only $349.

    I'd like to see how cpanel runs on the enterprise version also.


    Hopefully there is an official word from cpanel soon, even if it is so much as saying we bought the enterprise version and are investigating the possibility of porting cpanel to it.

    I think in the name of keeping things cost effective they should either release a fedora version or drop RH support all together (the later would be more of a punch in the face approach :)
