How long is it going to take people to get that Red Hat Linux 9 != “9.0” for $DIETY’s sake??

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    They won’t… it doesn’t matter how much you correct people, there will still be others who will get it wrong.

    A little after they start putting the space in ‘redhat’.

    I think it’s easy to remember that it’s just 9. I tell myself that RH’s reputation for .0 releases being <deleted> finally got back to the marketing department. :)

    (I think I can get away with saying this since I’ve run every RH release since 3.0.3 and am not just a slashdot parrot)

    I think you should call the next version 9dotone.

    Once they all figure out that its Red Hat Linux $VERSION, and not Red Hat $VERSION, there might be a chance at getting version numbers right
