Actually, if you're talking about the RedHat Linux distros, the last
"stable" one was Redhat Linux 9. All the FC ones are being released way
too fast and frequently to be used on a stable server.
Lets look at it this way... if you are on a desktop and using Fedora, just
keep upgrading to the next release when it comes out. They were made to be
frequently upgraded. A bit of upgrade time is acceptable on a
desktop/workstation, but it isn't acceptable on a server. FC was never
supposed to have a long lifespan for each release.
The last version of RedHat Linux that would have been used on servers most
commonly is RH9. We still have a lot of RH9 servers running, while 7.x and
8 has been moved to RH9 as well.
Anyway, hope that shows support for RH9!!!
