For the individual who wants to experiment with RHEL (or who is
interested in its reputed stability), there is White Box Linux, a clone
stripped of all RHEL proprietary logos etc. I believe there are other
OSS clones of RHEL as well.
However, Jamie is dead on in my experience on why it's easier to
introduce RHEL formally into a shop. PHBs and IT pros alike are willing
to pay (RHEL is dirt cheap by license standards they're used to) to get
that warm feeling that having a support company gives them.
Don't despise it, this is a Good Thing. It bridges the gap between OSS
and the traditional commercial shops.
