Linux supplier Red Hat is targeting small and medium-sized enterprises with its latest Linux release, Version 8, which boasts an improved graphical user interface (GUI), writes Lindsay Clark.

The Bluecurve GUI, which is based on Gnome 2.0, features themes, scroll bars, menus and several new graphical enhancements and icons. In addition to Bluecurve, the new version contains a number of updated applications, including the Openoffice productivity suite, an improved Evolution e-mail client, and the Mozilla browser 1.0.1.

Also included in Linux Version 8 is a suite of configuration tools for setting up several different system services, including Apache servers, Samba, network settings, firewalls and peripherals. Improved versions of Red Hat's C compiler and operating system kernel complete the release.
