Beginning in 2006, Red Hat will begin offering subscription models for web application development stacks, including three levels starting with the basic LAMP stack for $599, as an add-on to Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions. This means that not only will you be able to run a fully supported enterprise class distribution of Linux but that you could also run one of the web application stacks and expect the same level of updates and other support for the software stack from one vendor.

The three stacks range from LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, Perl/PHP) to a Java (LAMP + Tomcat, Ant, Lucene, etc) and Enterprise Java web application stack (Java stack + Red Hat J2EE Application Server).
