Hmmmmmmmmm........

I have never tried this distro before...

Oracle Corporation has announced the release of Oracle Linux 6, a distribution based on the recently released Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6: "Oracle is pleased to announce the general availability of Oracle Linux 6 for x86 (32-bit) and x86_64 (64-bit) architectures. Oracle Linux 6 includes many new features, including: ext4 file system installed by default; XFS as an optional file system; ftrace - a tracing framework for analyzing performance and latency in the kernel; Performance Counters for Linux (PCL) and perf - a subsystem that keeps track of hardware and software events without affecting performance; powertop - a new user space tool that helps you reduce server power usage by identifying power hungry processes; latencytop - a Linux tool aimed at identifying where system latency occurs; yum-only access to Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN)...." See the release announcement and release notes for a detailed list of features and changes compared to the upstream release. Oracle Enterprise Linux 6 is available for download as a compressed DVD image from the company's E-Delivery page (after filling up a simple registration form).

This is RedHat 6 with a few additions. I would not recommend it for a desktop or if you really want to try RedHat as a desktop system grab Scientific Linux the latest beta was just released. Scientific is RedHat but tweaked for desktop use.

Thanks John...

Handy to know... I am anxiously awaiting Ray's upcoming release of PhoenixOS, as well as RevLinuxOS's release.
