Red Hat Red Hat's Spacewalk project is getting into place. The project wants to feed development of the Red Hat Network Satellite product for system management. Satellite is a critical tool for Red Hat users as it provides management capabilities for multiple servers for software deployment and updates. Almost six months ago, Red Hat kicked off the Spacewalk project in an effort to create an open source version of Network Satellite that would serve as the upstream project that drives development. According to Red Hat executives, Spacewalk is still in the process of getting aligned with Network Satellite releases in terms of the development model. As well, Spacewalk is now gearing up to replace Network Satellite's proprietary Oracle database backend with an open source database. It's all part of Red Hat's larger efforts to use the open source model effectively in all parts of its business, as well as reducing the costs associated with proprietary databases.

Red Hat has survived

I started out with Red Hat 6.0 Professional when you could call a 1-800 number for support up to 30 days.

However, a hobby turned into a career in which I would have never guessed after years of not knowing what I was doing would lead to getting Red Hat Certifications and learning the core of the OS.

Fedora 10 is really nice, in fact I am running it on my Dell XPS M1530, but I run CentOS on other boxes and will be waiting for the release of RHEL6 which will be next year.

Red Hat has really shined when the giants in the software industry were trying to bring them down.

It is amazing how 'free software' has turned out to be a primary choice for the Enterprise. I would have had no idea over 10 years ago, that working with Red Hat Linux would be a daily job function.
