its corporate product.
Red Hat's newest product for businesses, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0 (RHEL 3.0), released last week, is based on version 2.4.21 of the Linux kernel,
the core part of the OS. Customers will have to hold out for RHEL 4 to see Linux version 2.6 in the corporate product, said Brian Stevens, Red Hat's
vice president of OS development.
"The reality is it's not ready," Stevens said of the 2.6 kernel.
