It's the first search result for "Redhat Enterprise" in Google ...

You can't download it without a subscription though.

This part is not true, you can download it and install it but without the subscription you will not get updates. I believe you need to make an account but need not subscribe to test it.

To the OP: If you do not want to purchase the subscription you should look into CentOS which is almost like running Redhat but without the subscription fees.

From their page:

Since March 2004, CentOS Linux has been a community-supported distribution derived from sources freely provided to the public by Red Hat. As such, CentOS Linux aims to be functionally compatible with RHEL. We mainly change packages to remove upstream vendor branding and artwork. CentOS Linux is no-cost and free to redistribute.

This question has been asked and answered many times here -- it almost ought to be a FAQ. If you want to use RHEL without paying, you can request an evaluation copy, which I think will get updates for 30 days. After that, though, no more uodates, CentOS and Scientific Linux are, for most practical purposes, identical to RHEL, having been rebuilt from the source RPMs with the Red Hat branding removed. If you're just looking to play around with something RHEL-like, these are good options.

The main benefits of buying RHEL are the support and (if needed) access to RH engineers. It's not really designed for hobbyist usage.

I'd bet just simple brand recognition and the fact that a lot of books about Linux in the enterprise focus on Red Hat. Heck, we still see requests for how to download RedHat 7 (and by that I mean Red Hat 7 from before it was split into RHEL and Fedora) and I suspect that is because some of the original Linux for Dummies series used RH7.
