Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4

Peter Parker writes "Red Hat Inc., the Raleigh, N.C.-based software vendor known for its Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) operating system and the open source Fedora Project, will release the latest version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux -- version 4.0 -- at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in Boston on Feb. 14.

The announcement is the first major upgrade to the companyĆ¢s signature product since October 2003, and is also the first instance where the company has made the operating system fully supported on the Linux 2.6 kernel.

While the release of a new version of an operating system is big news for any company, it is especially important for Red Hat, who has lost some ground to Waltham, Mass.-based Novell Inc., whose SuSE Linux 9 has been fully supported on the 2.6 kernel since August 2004.
