C|Net - Red Hat to offer high-end Linux version
Monday January 28 2002 @ 10:31PM EST

Red Hat, the top seller of the Linux operating system, will begin offering a higher-end and more specialized version of Linux later this year that won't be as easy to find as the current all-purpose package.

Red Hat will demonstrate its coming Advanced Server product this week at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in New York and plans to begin selling it mid-spring, said Paul Cormier, executive vice president of engineering at the Durham, N.C., company.

"As Linux is making inroads into the enterprise, we think the days of trying to stuff everything for everyone on one distribution are impractical at this stage," Cormier said. The new version also won't be updated as frequently as the mainstream version, which is refreshed every six months, he added.
