A company has to make money or it goes to the grave and then there is no software and no support. The certification thing sounds a bit out of order but I think they should make a profit, after all we reap the benefits to a certain extent. I agree that you can't just upgrade your servers as a home user would do his PC but then again you wouldn't want to would you. I bet there are a lot of companies out there running RH 7.2 and getting good service out of them now and probably still will be in a year or so. If you want a server that will run for years withough too much attention and not have to worry about lack of support try FreeBSD, that must be one of the most stable and reliable OS's on the planet.

I have been a Microsoft kinda guy for over 10 years now, have spent lots on their software. I just perchased RHL 8.0 from ComUSA for $19.00 along whith RHL 8.0 for Dummies $19.00. So for $40 bucks I now have a complete OS with 2 Source Code CDs and 1 Ducumentation CD. My Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional costs $299.00 It dosn't come with MS Office 2000 installed like RHL, which comes with OpenOffice, or CD Burning Software just to name a few.

So for me even tho learn Unix/Linux Command Prompt commands and configuration may be a handful. I still think to own a opperate RHL is must cheaper then Microsoft

Just my 2 Cents

Besides, no matter what distro you are using you are still learning Linux. And that means you are learning more about computers even if you don't try. Its good for people.
