SuSe Linux has a better chance since their Enterprise Server is evaluated at CC EAL 3+. 2005-01-25 9:35 pm Someone around here is using it for free already. Our AIX machines have been so stable you’d really have an uphill battle to sell me on it. The people who actually purchase stuff don’t know squat so they might be impressed. 2005-01-26 4:52 am Red Hat actually is in bed with the devil.
