Tomorrow is Red Hat's European launch its suite of Linux products, Official Red Hat Linux 6.1.
The latest release of the Red Hat Linux operating system promises to be easier to install and with enhanced performance and support.
Bob Young, chief executive of Red Hat, said: "We expect the improvements in installation, service, support and performance built into Red Hat Linux 6.1 make it an asset to enterprise networks."
The new suite includes the Linux 2.2.12 kernel, improved installation tools, automatic software update information through the Red Hat Update Agent and improved system management capabilities.
Installation is speeded up with graphic based directions. Users can choose from Gnome, KDE, server or custom interface settings.
Full compatibility with the lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP) makes integration easier for network administrators, the company claimed, and the release has been optimised for the Pentium III Xeon processor.
Other new features include improvements for high availability Internet server clustering and new Web or email based configuration support for the Apache Web server.
Red Hat also says that installations can be done across the network with virtually no user intervention through PXE server support.
Red Hat Linux 6.1 can be downloaded for free from ftp.redhat.com.
The CD shrink wrapped versions include Red Hat 6.1 with two operating system CDs, 90 days of email support and 30 days of priority online access for £24.99.
