Updating redhat 8
This free developer subscription was announced on March 31, 2016.
There are also "Academic" editions of the Desktop and Server variants.
It was based on Red Hat Linux, but used a much more conservative release cycle.
Later versions included technologies from the Red Hat–sponsored Fedora community distribution project.
In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 there are new editions that substitute former Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS/ES/WS/Desktop: Starting with RHEL 2.1 AS in 2002, Red Hat sold their first version of RHEL.
The use of trademarks prevents verbatim copying of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Since Red Hat Enterprise Linux is based completely on free and open source software, Red Hat makes available the complete source code to its enterprise distribution through its FTP site to anybody who wants it.
There was some cross-pollination between the two up until shortly before the first production RHEL 3 release.
Therefore, both FC1 and RHEL3 came from a common fork of RHL10beta1.) In addition, the Fedora project includes Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL), a community-provided set of packages for RHEL going beyond the ones that Red Hat selected for inclusion in its supported distribution.
