You keep saying this. I shall make only two points as I am bored of
saying this time and time again.
1) The "Stable" offering is Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
- If you lack the resources to afford this, take advantage of
the CentOS project. It's really quite good.
2) The "Fast Moving" offering is Fedora Linux.
- It's companion, Rawhide, offers even more chance to bleed.
The only difference between Canonical and Red Hat I can see, it that
all Ubuntu releases are under one brand (stable just appends the
letters "LTS", whereas Red Hat chose a while ago to have two brands
for two different products with two different names.
