I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

6.0 is latest although you can download alpha 7. here is the link


using free is absolutely fine until you can configure it as per your needs. Pay to redhat when you want one on one support from the expert team at red hat. They will help you to deploy and fine tune your application to its best.

I have noticed that the alpa 7 is only 19mb in size and 6.0 is 181mb from the download site.  What is the difference?  What do I down load first?
