Re: Slightly OT: They're forcing me to install Red Hat
I've spent time in both redhat & debian (though mostly in debian)
apt-get update ; apt-get upgrade -s ; apt-get upgrade # if OK
...is zero $
up2date # $50 per year per machine.
# fewer built in packages
If $ is a concern to your boss, then postgres is probably the equal of
oracle for most people. Postgres is supported on debian.
Another factor, moving from potato to woody was trivial.
I **think** the upgrade process for redhat involves fdisk....but this may
be different for the $500 enterprise version.
