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?

updated binary rpms

"My last grip (although minor and wont' apply to RHN users) is the lack of public ally available binary patches. I know src-rpms are available but that was one hassle I really didn't want to deal with. Call me lazy (and I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who think I am at this point) but I would have much rather had binary patches straight from Red Hat."

The binary RPMS are available through RHN, which is included in the purchase price of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
