Pirated Red Hat Linux

Hi All,

If you all ever wondered Linux and its distributions were free for ever and also with distributions like RHEL .. you are completely wrong.

While helping one of the persons recently on a RHEL issue - I came to know that - though they are the distributors of RHEL - they don't seem to use an original CD key.

The issue is same as MS XP or any other MS product.

Both RHEL and MS - they dont bother if you use a pirated or an original CD / DVD for installation. But the CD key you use has to be original only.

RHEL used to give a support of 5 years for using an original CD key and that too if asked for. Things could have changed now.

So beware you may be caught any time for using a pirated Linux Distribution (RHEL) as well !!

Here CD key is same as Serial Key.

Take care,
Ananth Gouri
