Open source software firm Red Hat has released the fifth version of its Enterprise Linux operating system.

Open source software firm Red Hat has released the fifth version of its Enterprise Linux operating system.

The OS was launched last week and includes improvements in performance, scalability and security, as well as additional hardware support and enhanced interoperability with Microsoft Windows and Unix, Red Hat said.

The vendor has worked extensively with customers and partners such as IBM on Enterprise Linux 5, and claimed the OS was the world’s “most compelling” operating environment.

“We have been developing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 for two years with our customers and partners driving the agenda,” said Paul Cormier, executive vice president of engineering at Red Hat.

“Their pain points were clear: they were unable to consume all of the technology being sold to them, and it was not solving their business problems effectively. Our resolve has been and will always be that we will deliver software that solves real business needs,” Cormier added.
