No, last night's news wasn't an early April Fool's Day joke: Red Hat Enterprise Linux is now available through a no-cost developer subscription as part of the Red Hat Developers Program. All that's needed is an email address to register for the program and developers then have access to not only Red Hat Enterprise Linux (as part of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Suite) but also the entire Red Hat JBoss Middleware portfolio and the Red Hat Container Development Kit (CDK).

This brings to bear the full power of Red Hat's enterprise grade stack for developers at no cost, making it a great way to build the next generation of applications, be they for physical machines, virtual environments or the cloud.

So what are you waiting for? Go try out the world's leading enterprise Linux platform for yourself!
