Red Hat Professional Workstation: More Expensive, Fewer Features

By eweek  |  Posted 2004-02-18 Email Print this article Print

One early review of Red Hat Professional Workstation finds little improvement over the soon to be retired Red Hat 9 and a higher price tag.

Red Hat Professional Workstationwas designed to allow former users of the companys consumer product line to continue to use a supported platform without having to migrate to Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Unfortunately, it fails to live up to its predecessors in key areas, and is considerably more expensive in some usage scenarios. Home users should look to the Fedora Project if they wish to continue using Red Hat technology, or consider migrating to another Linux distribution. Small businesses should analyse their current expenditure and consider migrating to another vendor.
