Red Hat released RHEL6 Beta 2!

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

As announced on the mailing list rhelv5-announce@redhat.com, Red Hat released beta2 of it upcoming RHEL6 enterprise product.

I’m actually disappointed by Red Hat, I was thinking that RHEL6 will be released GA on the summit a few days ago. It was not released. And instead of communicating a date, even a approximate date, the only message was “later this year”.

I do not understand Red Hat. Beta 1 is a rock solid Linux Distribution, with very few grave bugs detected. Of course, I do not like “banana products” where customers are the beta testers, but on this case, Red Hat behaves the other extreme way: GA of RHEL6 needs to be perfect.

I’m currently downloading RHEL6b2, and I’ll test it. Please wait a few hours for my test and its report.

Have fun!

Cheers,

Luc
