Re: extend EOL for Red Hat Linux 9?

well, fedora.us will also offer extended support for security releases.  for FREE.  though, i think that progeny is relatively inexpensive for their services and from what i've heard they're going to do more than just security updates.

besides, if something's CRITICAL you should probably invest the paltry $300 or whatever redhat charges for RHEL a year.  i look at it like having an extra sysadmin taking care of patching my system.

Time will end all my troubles, but I don't always approve of Time's methods.
