Red Hat When I volunteered to do this review I quickly realized that I was asked to review 'Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Server' and not just 'Red Hat Linux'. Then panic set in. How different was this going to be from regular old Red Hat that I've used and relied on for years? Is this going to be a whole new Red Hat with a whole bunch of advanced features that I wouldn't be able to talk about either because I missed them or because I'm not qualified?

RE: Advanced Admin Tools ???

>> After reading your review - I am now confused as to what exactly the difference between Fedora and Advanced Server is. I always assumed that Advanced Server has many more GUI admim/system tools and extended some of the functionality in the existing admin/system tools. The review mentioned nothing "new" compared to the desktop version.

Is the support contract the only reason to chose Server of Workstation?

> You pay for the support. Everything in it is GPL, and available as other distributions ("whitebox" I believe).

The reason why I ask is because with SuSE Personal - you don't get all the admin tools that you get with SuSE Professioal
