    Switching possibly now from CENTOS to RHEL as server on VM

    Hi folks.

    As it's FREE to join Red Hat developer program I thought I'd do it and download RHEL server (Red Hat) -- RHEL servers are in use in more places than any where else. CENTOS is derived from RHEL but since the server is FREE I thought I'd go for it.

    No-Cost RHEL Developer Subscription now available - RHD Blog

    Any SAP developers here might also be interested in this too

    I'm particularly interested in their Mobile software stuff - interesting Developer Forums. Note though as a private user you don't get support from RHEL -- that's paid subscription - but the Forums are helpful enough.

    Interested to see what the difference is between RHEL and CENTOS -- should be minimal but if I want to try developer stiff it's best to be on an identical system.

    Testing as a VM first hosted on W10 Pro.

    Finally RedHat coming back to free software. What took them so long? I skipped RedHat altogether when they commercialized it. Fedora was not an alternative for me, though it has always worked great. The interesting stuff/binaries were still in RedHat products only, so I I switched to debian based Linux which I compiled from scratch. :)

    Thanks for the update!
