Completely false! 

RedHat supports and pays for many engineers developing and
maintaining the Fedora project. It's free, it's very well
supported and nobody has to pay any fee even for the use of the
RedHat servers and bandwidth as they download the ISOs and the

Home users that want multimedia and wireless with frequent upgrades 
should use Fedora.

Corporate users that want a long and stable environment should use 
RHEL. If they do not want to pay for the support or the licenses, 
RedHat has released the full source code for their enterprise product. 
This is were CaOS/Tao/Fermi/WBEL... come in.

SuSE/Novell does not release their enterprise servers under the GPL 
licence, RedHat does. There are already betas available for RHEL 4.
