    On the cpanel.net homepage it currently says

    Does "end of the year" mean 2003 or 2004 since it's now February 19th, 2004?

    Does cPanel fully support RedHat Enterprise right now, or are there certain things that still work better with Redhat 9?

    Thanks for reminding me. I just updated that notice :)

    We currently have functional versions of the Enterprise and Fedora versions of Red Hat and are supporting the original versions as long as Fedora-Legacy continues to provide quality updates.

    We do still suggest RH9 of all the RedHat versions though.

    Really, I opened a ticket with support a couple of weeks ago and they recommended RHEL over RH9 at this point. I'd love it if you guys got your stories straight.

    Thanks Josh.

    That's what I thought but when it didn't change when Februrary rolled around I thought I'd better chedk ;) Now don't go looking to see if my own site is up to date :D

    For a new server though Redhat Enterprise is much more appealing to me than 9 since it has a 5 year lifespan of updates, whereas it's unclear how long "as long as" will be for RedHat 9 or what quality will be maintained. Especially where the datacenter pays for the Enterprise license and it's essentially free for the customer, that's a more appealing deal than 9 right now.
