Have you been living under an IT rock? Maybe just a pile of cabling in a really untidy data center? Then you probably know Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 is launching this month. But maybe not the exact day. Well, now you know: March 14 (two weeks later than planned).
Here at SearchEnterpriseLinux.com we’ve written pretty extensively about RHEL5, from its baked-in Xen paravirtualization capabilities; to Q&A’s with Red Hat executives about driving down costs with virtualization; and even to the other side of the coin with Novell and what they have done to mitigate the popularity surge that a major product launch like RHEL5 is sure to generate. That’s all preview and speculation though; its going to take some time before we see how features like Xen work themselves out.
