I was always under impression that distros like RH get money from their subscription services and commercial support.[/quote]
Yeap, but there just is not enough from consumer side of things. The trouble that they have to go though with support for installation ( even sometime unpaid support here gets me furstrated so you can imagine how people will be with paid support ) , it just ain't worth it. Now, they will only do that for Enterprise distro.
I'm not saying it's a good idea but I just understands what they are going through.
I think they should have let people download ISO without any support.Having the ability to download ISO images for ages and now seeing that it's not longer available....doesn't leave a good taste in the mouth.
But then again, what good is a distro without any update such as security?
I think at least something is better than nothing at all. Now, I'm stuck in RH 7.3 land. I just converted my desktop to new box with Debian from my former RH box.
So long Red Hat.
;DAnd, yes, I don't work for free, I'm getting paid, can't beat that argument :-)
