This is the 1-year notification of the End Of Life plans for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

In accordance with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Errata Support Policy, the regular 7 year life-cycle of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 will end on October 31, 2010. After this date, Red Hat will discontinue the regular subscription services for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. Therefore, new bug fix, enhancement, and security errata updates, as well as technical support services will no longer be available for the following products: * Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 3 * Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES 3 * Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS 3 * Red Hat Enterprise Linux Extras 3 * Red Hat Desktop 3 * Red Hat Global File System 3 * Red Hat Cluster Suite 3 Customers still running production workloads on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 are advised to begin planning the upgrade to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. Active subscribers of Red Hat Enterprise Linux already have access to all currently maintained versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, as part of their subscription without additional fees. For customers who are unable to migrate off Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 before its end-of-life date, Red Hat may offer a limited, optional extension program.
