I'm not really sure that the reasons for Rhel really exist anymore. The oft
quoted Library stabilty is more of a hindrance than a help in modern
development environments with well operating CI.

When the dinosaur IBM bought RH it was clear that it had become a fossil.

Of course there is still legacy applications that need that but I see a
definite shift away from OS dependant monoliths even in the more
traditional enterprises
