Run online Linux RedHat versions using your web browser. This extension provides the following OSs: Fedora, CentOS, Oracle Linux, OpenSUSE and Mandriva. All of them run using an integration with our "OnWorks" free servers hosting provider:

1. This Fedora online is the common Fedora workstation, which is the RedHat main project, a free community-based distro focused on quick releases of new features and functionality. It covers software distributed under free and open-source licenses. Fedora is the main source of the economic Red Hat Enterprise Linux distribution. What it is good about Fedora is that its focus is the innovation, integrating the latest technologies. The default desktop background in Fedora is GNOME and the default user interface is the GNOME Shell.

2. This CentOS online is the common CentOS workstation, which can be considered as the RedHat community version. We can consider both RedHat and CentOS as identical, but CentOS is free and its support comes from the community as opposed to RedHat itself. It means that CentOS allows people to use RHEL without having to pay for the support package. Any packages made for RHEL will work in CentOS. As the name suggests, CentOS is an enterprise distribution, and although RHEL is based off of Fedora, it’s package selection is much oriented to enterprise software. It is one of the most popular Linux distributors in the hosting industry.

3. This OpenSUSE online is a RedHat OS version but it is known for making an important change compared to other Linux distributions because it uses the KDE desktop as its default desktop environment rather than GNOME. Moreover, OpenSUSE also includes a lot of free software, but we must say that it does not have an innovative focus on it as Fedora does. It must be also noted that that although Fedora, CentOS, ... and openSUSE use .rpm files for packages, it does not mean that all these .rpm packages work in openSUSE, and vice versa.

4. This Mandriva online is another RedHat based OS but it has a pragmatic distribution that tries to provide a better user experience for everyone, from newbies to developers. Its vision is to have a balance between most modern features and stability. Its roots are in Mandrake.

Note that all of these RedHat online versions are integrated with the file manager that are provided by the OnWorks free hosting provider. This file manager can be used to save and load the files handled inside the OnWorks online workstations.
