Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5: Why Bother? March 16, 2007Posted by rjdohnert in Opinions.
Steven J Vaughn-Nichols has posted a ” Four good reasons to switch to RHEL 5” editorial. In this editorial he cites his own opinion piece “Vista: Why bother?” Talk about credibility. Thats like asking a guy who has a traffic accident (or train wreck) to be his own witness. But my only question to Steven is this: Can you only pick 4 reasons to upgrade to RHEL 5? 4 reasons is like masturbation without the payoff. Did he seriously use the product? Did he even get the generated e-mail like I did that said that the images were available please download a copy for a review. If four reasons are the only thing he can come up with I might consider cancelling my download. I can think of four reasons to stick with RHEL 4 rather than upgrade. Steven Im going to do you a favor, I know how great Vista is and even did my own opinion piece on it but Im not going to cite my own piece. So, let me call your ” Four reasons to switch to RHEL 5″ and raise you ” 30 reasons to switch to Vista“
