Re: Does RHEL Dev' edition get access to patches and security updates?
Personally I run my Linux setup on Debian for the patches and security and it works quite nice with everything I've thrown at it. I still have a lot of work to do as there are lots of different things I would like to implement and try. I've even set up jboss for some web analytical software on it, which works quite well though it did have a steep learning curve with scant resources available on the web.
I'm also curious at this as I originally cut my teeth in Linux using Red Hat many many years ago. My concern with this is that it's not aimed at production so I'm unsure it will get the patch love the full product gets or it may be a bona fide test environment.
