Not too long ago, I covered CentOS, a free operating system that is rebuilt from packages of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, or “RHEL”. This results in a clone of Red Hat Enterprise Linux that costs you absolutely nothing as you don’t have to pay Red Hat’s prices for their support services for the product.
While CentOS may be a nice way to get enterprise-quality software on your systems without spending a dime, it may still be worth a look at the real deal. So what features does Red Hat Enterprise Linux (which costs $299 per year) include that make it worthwhile to use on enterprise desktops, and is it ultimately the best enterprise desktop solution?
