This is great news. Red hat is THE corporate standard for Linux based OSes and it's awesome to see them nearing another release.

As great as the community has been in driving more bugfixes in the more visible portions of the Linux ecosystem, without corporate sponsors like Red Hat, we wouldn't have the great multipurpose full featured OS that Linux based systems have become. It takes a business like Red Hat to do the non-glamorous coding work that needs to be done to ensure a stable and viable system that corporate environments require.

For that and for sponsoring the Fedora project (running Fedora 13 Beta) I salute them.

How do you know that. Please supply us with your evidence.

I do not work for RH or any of their distributors not do I own any shares in RH.
I do however use RHEL/CentOS & Fedora and at time Kbuntu.

Their stance towards things like Mono should be applauded and the featureset outlined for RHEL 6 is just great (IMHO) for their target market.

F12 is (IMHO) far more stable than *buntu 9.10. I'm expecting F13 to improve on that as well.

Yeah, this is really a great news! ;)

Anyone knows on which Fedora has been finally based?

RHEL4 -> Fedora Core 3
RHEL5 -> Fedora Core 6
RHEL6 -> Fedora 11 or 12? (or even 13?)

AFAIK, it was based on a modified F11.
(I first noticed EPEL branches durnig the F12 development)

Primarily Fedora 12 but several updates from Fedora 13. It will change considerably before release as well.

There's nothing really sexy or exciting about a mature company releasing their scheduled mature product when they have a bleeding edge product that better captures the internet of most of this audience.
