Okay I'll add my two cents worth as well. RedHat is a "for profit"
company, so they provide different product streams with different
benefits. Do we need them, no. Fedora/Ubuntu/Debian/Mandriva will do us
fine because we know (or should know) what we're doing.
For orgs that do not have a SLUG super geek at hand, RedHat support
gives them sense that they can a) Have someone they can call for help,
and b) Have someone to blame when it does go wrong.
