Red Hat Linux 4.0 offers power, security
In our Clear Choice test of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0, (we tested RHEL 4.0 Advanced Server, Red Hat’s most robust Linux distribution), we found huge performance gains over previous editions, beefed up security options and vastly improved hardware detection mechanisms.
The increased speed comes by way of the new Linux 2.6.9 kernel. RHEL 4.0 posted numbers in our web transactional test that showed a 23 per cent hike over the numbers posted by RHEL 3.0 on identical hardware.
