RedHat Linux 5.1 Woo Hoo!

I Recall using RedHat 5.1. 1998 was the year. I hope it will run on that cool dell Hardware. Speaking of which, I hope Dell knows how to harden something that is almost 10 years old.

All that aside, it would run Debian and Solaris for me anyway. Good Job Dell!

That's Red Hat Enteprise, buddy

I can't recall using the (then free) Red Hat Linux 5.1, at that time I was (and still am) a big Slackware fan.

Anyway they're obviously referring to the paid-for distribution. Last time I've checked the latest version was 5.0.

This notebook is big iron. I woudn't like having to carry its bag on my shoulder though.

DELL has a long way to go to (re-)gain a trustable name in notebooks IMHO. Their boxes aren't especially reliable these days (used to be).

But still no dual link DVI?

(Needed for large screen use)

HP now sells nearly 3 times as many notebooks as Dell. Even Apple sells more. It seems suppliers no longer give Dell everything they ask for.

RH Vs RHEL

I suspect Dell meant to say Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and not Red Hat Linux. The former will have 5.1 out in October and the latter had 5.1 way back in May 1998 (according to the ever reliable WikiP types).

Light as a Feather

"It's not exactly light, but Dell expects to see customers take it with them every where they go to work."

And I've spent the last 2 days lugging my M90 around London complete with the insanely large powerpack...

oww oww oww....
