Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.4 Beta Released
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) is a commercial Linux distribution with a history of more than ten years (initially released in 2000). It often uses on mainframes and supercomputers in addition to ordinary PCs and general servers. The excellent stability makes it widely used in many infrastructure-level servers. It provides support for multiple architectures such as the 64-bit ARM, x86/x86_64, Power PC, and IBM z Systems. Red Hat uses strict trademarked rules to limit the free redistribution of its officially supported version of RHEL, but RHEL’s source code still provided free of charge. Third-party derivative versions can be built upon the removal of non-free components such as Red Hat trademarks, such as community-supported commercial forks such as CentOS and Scientific Linux, as well as Oracle Linux.
