my concern is primarily a stable system. redhat is a preference.

quite a few of my clients are using rhel where they can. due to how some
have set up from start with commercial and private software running under
oos, it is not possible to get full change over.

as for use in what i do, most of it is closed systems and output display
is with generic linux. that is, primarily what is used is port i/o. not
a bunch of libs to support games, hi res graphics, office progs and such.
in a word, 'embedded'.

thanks for your reply.
