If you A) need commercial support and B) need an 'enterprise' O/S, then
you can pay RedHat for RHEL, which includes support.  RedHat won't
provide commercial support for either CentOS or Fedora Core.
CentOS and RHEL are pretty much the *same* environment (binary
equivelant -- CentOS has just been de-branded and the few non
open-source packages removed).  Fedora Core is not that same -- it is
more like a beta-testbed for RHEL/CentOS and is stricky community supported.
