The most annoying of Red hat is its slow running of applications even though it has a perfect architecture of its Gnome. The slowness may be as a result of the fact that thee general configuration is not okay as opposed to the Gnome itself. LINUX MARKET SHARE GENERAL COMPARISON Red hat’s theme of Bluecurve is not efficient since it does not hide that open source applications come from here. SUSE’s own window decoration together with KDE’s keramik icons are so efficient together thus KDE and Gnome applications blend in together very well. Another advantage going to SUSE is the fact that it is a very good working clipboard as opposed to the Red hat’s lack of an integrated copy and paste solution such that if a person wants to copy a text and try pasting it in another application, it usually ends in one finding the clipboard empty. Irritating is an understatement to this scenario. SUSE has integrated its system control tools much better than Red hat since the control tools are divided into two sets, one for the system hardware and it goes by the name YAST and the other one for KDE. Red hat on the other hand has very little or minimal control over hardware, the boot loader and the other areas/ parts of the system since the Gnome controls are scattered everywhere. The other similarities and differences are as follow in the statements and paragraphs below. Red hat Linux focuses on the attributes that follow: Offering a highly optimized application for large-scale, centrally-managed enterprise deployment, industry-leading virtualization performance, flexibility, security for both host and guest environment, the provision of a platform that offers clients access to better technology in the life time of the product, and provides the best efficiency with the latest generation of system which are scalable. There are various features that define Red Hat (Haynes, 2009). Such features, and which vary to some extent from Suse include the following: kernel and core technology stack, virtualization, performance, client/desktop, development, scalability, and security. The first features to examine is kernel and core technology stack. It provides the user with an updated core, including the operating system kernel, compiler and development tools, libraries, and drivers and not forgetting applications such as nfs, http, samba etc. It has been the leading developer and contributor of technology to the Linux kernel for many years and uses them to come up with a kernel that encompasses a comprehensive set of strength capabilities in the enterprise (Davenport, 2009). Its design allows for future capabilities to be included and incorporated into it without impacting certified applications and this is possible by keeping APIs/ ABIs stable. The benefit of this is that it provides a platform for future incorporation of the latest open source technologies in a state-of-the-art solution. ISVs enjoy a stable, flexible environment on which to launch and support their applications. Thus the end user achieve the maximum return on their investment in IT, with features that give the maximum and proper utilization of resources and rapid absorption of new technologies.
