S. National Security Agency has offered a series of kernel patches to assist in building secure versions of Linux. This has quickened the development of SELinux within both Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. S. S. Marine Corps; Federal Aviation Administration; NASA; and the Departments of Defense, Agriculture, and Energy also use Linux-enabled platform solutions from IBM and Hewlett-Packard/Compaq. Small business owners can earn great rewards by stepping off the software licensing and upgrade treadmill and adopting a Linux-based solution.

Org/. Universal Serial Bus Devices Fedora supports hundreds of different Universal Serial Bus devices. USB is a design specification and a protocol used to enable a host computer to talk to attached peripherals. Because of lack of manufacturer and device ID information or lack of technical specifications regarding certain chipsets, some devices might not work with Fedora. 5 and 12Mbps. Common USB devices include cameras, keyboards, mice, modems, network interfaces, printers, scanners, storage devices, video (such as webcams), and hubs (to chain additional devices).

Although there might be some additional support costs, again, training might not be an issue, especially if Linux is invisibly deployed. Hidden charges might be offset by the low cost in licensing, deployment, scaling, maintenance, resource requirements, and support of legacy hardware. You should know what you are going to do with Linux before you install it. In other words, what is the objective of your migration? If Fedora will be used as a replacement platform for network services, what services will be replaced?
