Red Hat releases version 7.3
Red Hat has released the latest version of its Linux software, adding the newest version of the KDE (K Desktop Environment) graphical desktop interface and the ability to configure a personal firewall at installation.
Version 7.3 carries the same price tag as version 7.2, which Red Hat released in October - $60 (£41) for Red Hat Linux 7.3 Personal for individual users and $200 (£136) for Red Hat Linux 7.3 Professional, an offering aimed at small businesses that includes several months of support. The software is available now at Red Hat's Web site for download in most countries, and is scheduled to go on sale on 15 May.
The latest version also incorporates Ximian's Gnome 1.4, the Mozilla Web browser, improved support for digital cameras, and video conferencing and project management software.
