could be.  all i know about redhat is what people tell me and what i see
on sites like lwn.net and slashdot.

i jumped on-board of linux when redhat was at 5.0.   5.0, 6.0 and 7.0
were all pitiful (i had the misfortune of installing 5.0 and 6.0 myself
before i gave up on redhat and switched to suse).

maybe they got their act together with 8.0.  stranger things have
happened.  :)
