RHEL need no competitors at all then?
If you are suggesting Ubuntu should focus on the server market - well they have put a lot into that too but they cannot get the market share required to sustain their business from that. RHEL is far too entrenched.
Red Hat seem to be selling a Desktop support package still, but minus the support! I assume this is a cost for the installer and updates.
I've donated the sterling equivalent of $49 to Ubuntu, and would do that on a yearly basis if it meant a cruft free system.
