News.com heeft een nieuwsbericht over Redhat Linux 6.0, die maandag gereleased zal worden:
ersion 6.0, code-named Starbuck, incorporates the new version 2.2 of the Linux kernel and will offer improved capabilities for multiprocessing. The CD version of the OS will also probably cost more than Red Hat's current flavor of Linux, said chief executive Robert Young. The product is expected to be available in stores May 10, he said. The current version retails for $50. Young also said the new version will be downloadable for free. [..]he fight over whose graphics interface should lie atop Linux is moot, Young said. Red Hat heavily backed the Gnome effort to improve the graphical user interface, but in version 6, Red Hat will include installation options for both Gnome and KDE. KDE is based on software libraries from Troll Tech that don't pass open source muster, but Troll Tech's next version of those libraries won't have those proprietary concerns, Young said. Another change in the new version will be a remote installation utility that lets people install or upgrade Linux on remote servers via the network, Young said.
