Yesterday Red Hat announced the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Beta. Released with an invitation to test and report, RHEL 7 Beta is based on Fedora 19 and is said to be “the future of IT. Whether rolling out new applications, virtualizing environments or scaling the business with cloud, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 delivers the keystone to IT success.”
RHEL 7 Beta ships with Linux 3.10, GCC 4.8, and GNOME 3 Classic. The latter features a “window list at the bottom of the screen and traditional Applications and Places menus.” KDE 4.10 is also available in RHEL 7 Beta with the new screen management tool KScreen.
