I understand "RedHat' objective is to make money ."
I have no problem with that.
I talking in terms of promotional value.
RedHat used to be a synonym of Linux in the eyes of many people.
In a book store computer section - a high percentage of the Linux books where devoted to RedHat. In computer stores - RedHat was always featured.
That's a lot of lost free publicity. Companies spend millions and IBM, Billions on promotion because it works.
Suse is the only thing left in most computer outlets - good for Suse - bad for RedHat.
I'm not saying Fedora is bad - it's not a ready to go solution. Someone evaluating Linux from a business point of view doesn't want to mess around trying to figure out what they have to download and install to get it working right.
Suse is now THE out-of-the-box-ready-to-go Linux solution, not RedHat.
Brand recognition makes a difference.
