Anyone using this and liking it?

I'm very troubled by it thus far :no: in fact I'm not really liking anything RedHats put out since 7.3 and I'm thinking of going back to it.

Opinions?

I have it but haven't installed it. I last installed 8.0 and according to the reviews I've read 9.0 is apparently a big improvement in Blue Curve and the installation section. I'll break down and install it one of these days..

Using and liking

I've been using RH9 for a couple of weeks now as a test/education machine. I'm trying to remember my Linux SysAdmin skills. The going is slow.

I like working with the newest version of X, I've seen leaps and bounds on the XFree86 project since first installing Slakware 7 back in the day. As well, the creation and addition of graphical front ends for the configuration components are very well integrated, and a lot easier than rewriting /etc/rc.d/init.d scripts.

Another handy feature is the Red Hat Network which ascts just like Windows Update without needing to run up2date from the command line. Although with Linux you never have to reboot after performing the update.

The next big development I'm looking forward to is Kernel 2.6. One more step towards the mystical Linux Kernel v3. If anyone has been mucking about with the 2.5.* I'd love to hear how it shapes up.

RedHat is just a flavor of Linux, some others are Mandrake, Slakware, Turbo Linux, Debain, etc.

Linux is based on Minix which was a Unix clone so thats why they are so simliar.

Which is the best 1

Whats the differance between Apache and IIS, I know they use different script language
ugh IIS is run on a Windows Server and sucks Marjory. Apache can run on Windows but was made for Linux/unix and is open source, secure, stable and fast .. uh I vote for Apache. :)

apache win32 is defently NOT secured! , let's say apache win32 1.3.* is all exploit able except of 1.3.27 which probably already have one soon.

oh and by the way, i don't mean that iis is MORE secured than apache, the new iis version - iis media is now also exploited. and the before of it - webdav not to mention iis 4.

so iis is not safe, in what way?
hackers can c data that iis has saved (database)
hackers can c data outside iis area (c:\windows etc)
or hackers can damage data

*stop*
Whoops I meant the Linux/unix versions were secure, etc, I was just mentioning they made it for Windows. Iv never used it on a Windows platform and assumed like Windows itself that anything made for it would have holes. .. thus why I never used it on said platform. ;)

Edited to Clarify: I choose Apache for the Linux/Unix OS, I would trust nothing mission critical to the Windows OS.
