Lineox, Inc. has made available a web page with instructions how to get highly Red Hat Desktop compatible Linux now and for free.

Red Hat has announced a new Red Hat Linux version aimed for desktop use and it is promised to be available in mid-May. According to the information provided by Red Hat on pages Red Hat Enterprise Linux Features and Benefits (http://www.redhat.com/software/rhel/features/) and Red Hat Desktop (http://www.redhat.com/software/rhel/desktop/), Red Hat Desktop is only a version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0 with some program packages removed and some added. Even if Red Hat doesn't mention it, we are quite certain that Red Hat Desktop includes also all the updates published for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0 up to about the end of April.

So to get highly Red Hat Desktop compatible Linux now and for free, you should first download Lineox Enterprise Linux 3.0, register to Lineox Enterprise Linux 3.0 update service and install all the available updates or to save time, download the latest Always Current Lineox Enterprise Linux (not a free download) and skip the update phase. Next you may want to remove the program packages which are not included in Red Hat Desktop and then download from the Internet and install the packages that are added to Red Hat Desktop.
