Linux Distributions
Distributions are different versions or flavors of Linux OS. You can use it in a server, desktop and other devices.
There are over 100 recognised flavours of the Linux based operating system in development, and possibly many more 'home brew' efforts in the hands of hobbyists and enthusiasts colaborating trought the internet around the world.
Red Hat Linux - Red Hat has begun an effort to use its position as the dominant seller of the Linux operating system to try to smooth over a long-running divide about the look and feel of the OS. The company unveiled Red Hat Linux Enterprise version , which includes a new interface called Bluecurve that highlights Red Hat's focus on desktop users. In the past, Linux has been used chiefly for servers, but with the new version Red Hat is gunning for corporate PC users who don't need all the features of Windows
Lindows - Understanding LindowsOS has been a challenge for many and the reason is simple: most of us are Linux people viewing LindowsOS as a Linux distribution. It's much easier to appreciate the product when you approach it from a different viewpoint. LindowsOS is not made for Linux people, although they may like it, it's made for Windows converts. Remember, as you read, that you are probably *not* the demographic that Lindows.com is after, but also remember that you might like what you see. Also, the community seems to have ignored, similarly to the OpenOffice.org debacle, that there is no "Lindows." Lindows.com is the name of the company and LindowsOS is their flagship product.
Mandrake Linux - MandrakeSoft today announced the release of Mandrake Linux, a new-generation Linux operating system for servers and desktop workstations. Mandrake Linux combines all the power & stability of Linux with many new and unique features plus the famous "Mandrake touch" which has a long tradition of excellence and leadership on the desktop.
According to MySQL CEO Marten Mickos, the database-feature war is over and the missing functionality in products such as MySQL is not needed by some companies. MySQL also is capable of performing transactions and can support 1 billion records, he said. If Oracle or DB2 is the Cadillac, then we are the Ferrari.
