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?

Graphical Interfaces etc...

My intent was not to portray graphical utilities in a negative light, infact I found the apache and samba utilities be extremely easy to use and much quicker than doing it by hand. I just found that it was a little hard to get used to simply because I had been using the config file directly for so long. And Robert Escue is right, things like Oracle need a gui to install, I just an not sure that X should start up by default when the machine powers on.
