If the relative weight of the RHCE is any indication of how Red Hat's new Red Hat Certified Security Specialist cert will affect Linux security, then one can be sure that the RHCSS will put more qualified eyes on security and that makes for more secure installations.

Red Hat's Hogan Comments on UserLinux

The following three replies are taken from a longer Q & A just published at www.LinuxQuestions.org.

I'm still not sure if it's an effort to get funding being Debian-based distros, or a reaction to things Red Hat i... (more)
