    i prefure fedora as you know redhat is not releasing updates, fedora is going to release updates, i would rather go with a operating system that has updates getting made! All my dedicated servers are on fedora and i dont have a problem.

    Theortically speaking, Redhat 9 has been on the block for over a year and has been deemed to be stable as it is while Fedora is supposed to be perpetual bleeding edge. Although Fedora is quite stable, it has a very short EOL lifespan. Unofficially it might be the testing ground to launching the Redhat Enterprise new versions.

    Personally, I would opt for using Redhat 9 instead of Fedora because I believe my customers are too valuable to host them on beta OS.

    Although official support for Redhat 9 has expired, you can still get support through Fedora Legacy updates and through the paid service of Progeny.

    I would go with Fedora. The EOL supposedly on Fedora is short but if you read it will have a 2 year or better lifespan per release.

    Also, it basically is the same as RHE in many aspects and is completely stable as far as I have ever seen. Actually, in some aspects it has been deemed more stable than RHE.

    Go with RH 9. Like mentioned earlier, Fedora Legacy will keep pushing updates out for it and there are other individual groups that do the same as well, without the need to subscribe to Progeny.

    If you are really looking for a long support timeframe, you can either go with -

    - Redhat 9 + Legacy Updates - www.fedoralegacy.com

    - RHEL derivatives - WhiteBox EL, CentOS 3.1, TAO Linux, etc

    Errr, the Fedora Legacy site should be http://www.fedoralegacy.org/ and not http://www.fedoralegacy.com

    You only go with Debian or FreeBSD if you know those OS. For someone who do not know anything about them, it is as good as being dead in the waters.
