Red Hat overhauls Linux range
The Linux company is set to release a new version of its Fedora software, and has upgraded its enterprise product with support for new processors and servers. Red Hat, the top-ranked seller of the Linux operating system, has expanded chip support for its corporate version of the open-source operating system and plans a major change to Fedora, its hobbyist product, in coming days. In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, Upd. 2, released on Wednesday, the Linux seller added support for Intel's 64-bit "x86" processors and IBM's Power processor-based JS20 blade servers. In addition, the upgrade adds 64-bit versions of developer tools for Intel's Itanium and Xeon chips and Advanced Micro Devices' Opteron.
Red Hat also is wrapping up Fedora Core 2, the company's test bed for new technology intended to let enthusiasts and developers try out the latest software more quickly. It's free but lacks the long-term support that comes with the Enterprise Linux product.
