Personally I think we'd have all been better off walking away from anything 
related to Red Hat on the day they changed their redistribution policy, but 
there wasn't a great alternative at the time.  Now there's ubuntu and 
OpenSolaris if I weren't too lazy to learn a new administration style.  Maybe if 
enough people switch RH will go back to selling service without restricting access.
