Red Hat releases version 7.3

Red Hat Inc. released the latest version of its Linux software Monday, adding the newest version of the KDE (K Desktop Environment) graphical desktop interface and the ability to configure a personal firewall at installation.

Red Hat Linux version 7.3 carries the same price tag as version 7.2, which Red Hat released in October: US$59.95 for Red Hat Linux 7.3 Personal for individual users and $199.95 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 scheduled to go on sale in retail stores May 15.

In addition to KDE 3.0, the new Red Hat Linux incorporates Ximian Inc.'s Gnome 1.4, the Mozilla Web browser, improved support for digital cameras, and video conferencing and project management software.

A complete list of Red Hat Linux 7.3's features is available on Red Hat's Web site, at http://www.redhat.com/.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
