Well, I’ve touched up and included my article on RHEL Installation Numbers while working through the new website. You should see it on the right. I’ve added a small bit about the mysterious Red Hat Global Desktop product as its now included in the installation number code.
I do admit that I was quite livid when writing that stuff up originally. I edited out quite a bit as my personal feelings on the matter aren’t really appropriate. Professionally, I found them to be a giant pain to integrate into a deployment of over 1,000 linux workstations and servers. One of the many joys of Open Source is the ease that different products can integrate and the INs made things much more complex.
