What do you think of RHEL?

Valuable Features: Stable Linux OS. The stability of the OS is very important for the computer system. Unstable means you never know when it will crash or fail while your valuable data and business applications are running. • Improvements to My Organization: It's an open source solution. • Room for Improvement: Many areas in version 5 are obsolete such as filesystem ext2, ext3, while the new versions (v.6, 7) support ext4, Btrfs, ZFS, etc. • Use of Solution: 10 years. • Stability Issues: No. • Scalability Issues: No. • Customer Service and Technical Support: No technical support. • Previous Solutions: No. • Initial Setup: No. • Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing: No more support and licensing. • Other Solutions Considered: No.
