Dag Wieers wonders
whether seven years of support is enough for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). He looks at the increasing time span between RHEL major releases and notes that the support window may close before customers are ready. "Let me explain what I mean. When Red Hat released RHEL2.1, seven years of support was perfect, seemed more than one would want. RHEL3 came 18 months after RHEL2.1 and after one year of testing RHEL3 and 3rd party integration new systems could be deployed, giving you 6 years of support. Your hardware would usually not outlive the operating system support.
