Well, its probably a bit of both. Anyway, I digress. Yes, indeed Red Hat Linux 9 is comming out very soon.

This is a complete break with tradition, we we were expecting a Red Hat 8.1, 8.2, 8.3, etc before moving to 9. A move to a new major number tends to indicate some pretty big changes - more than just a new kernel, we would be thinking about perhaps a new gcc perhaps.
I was initially quite unhappy about version 8.0 of Red Hat, so I am not sure what to expect with 9. But I will admit that 8.0 has grown on me in a way. Hopefully 9 will consolidate a lot of the changes they were playing with in 8. But then... who knows??
