2. RedHat Announcement

From RedHat’s announcement list:

Dear Red Hat Linux user;

Red Hat Linux 9 distribution will reach its end-of-life for errata maintenance on April 30, 2004.  This means that from May 1, 2004 we will not be producing new security, bugfix, or enhancement updates for this product.

There are a variety of options available for migration.  Red Hat offers Red Hat Enterprise Linux as well as the new Fedora Project.  Our Red Hat Linux Migration Resource Center can help you find the Red Hat solution best suited for your needs:
