View Full Version : Red Hat's Jeremy Hogan clears the fog
7th May 2004, 06:28 AM
Red Hat's Community Relation's Manager Jermey Hogan has written a fine piece in response to the article posted a couple days ago titled Onward through the fog! (http://www.newsforge.com/trends/04/05/04/1427200.shtml) He also expains the reasons behind the Fedora/RHEL split and other interesting tidbits.
There's also a mention of FedoraForum! :)
Red Hat Desktop strategy: Semantics have been part of the messaging problem (http://www.newsforge.com/article.pl?sid=04/05/05/205241)
But on the downside, he also managed to mention FedoraChat which appears to be in its death throes.
Glad to see that I wasn''t the only one that noticed it though.

And he mentiones FedoraLegacy twice..
I think Fedora/Red Hat is very foggy now, and it has been for about half a year. I think this mailinglist entry sums it up very well: http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2004-May/msg00104.html
It doesn't really seem like a lot though, if thats all of the community which he knows about.

well, we are all here with 1 mission, helping fedora users, no matter where they get help, as long as we can get fedora or linux grab more market share, i'm happy :p

I'm still confused.
What's the intended difference between Red Hat Desktop and Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS?
And whose "desktop" are we talking about here? My desktop here at home, or the 500 desktops sitting in cubicles at the office?
The answer to these questions will help me decide if I should care about this or not.

Since it is available in packages of 10 or 50 units it's made for enterprises. From all I can figure out it sounds like a RHL WS, but with even less applications included. Probably aimed at the regular office worker, joe/jane helpdesk, office assistants and other workers.
Red Hat is definitely not looking at sales in the home market. It appears they are leaving those open to Linspire, Xandros, Lycoris, Suse and others.
