RedHat Linux used to be a hugely popular, open source, free to download and use operating system. However, their business model has changed and they are now a more “corporate orientated” organisation. Some would say they’ve sold their soul to the devil, but that’s a bit dramatic for me!
Today I came across a great alternative called CentOS (new window). CentOS essentially create duplicates of the RedHat linux distributions but strip out the RedHat branding, allow you to keep your system up to date for free, and make a few other minor changes. Hooray!
