Question Difference between Red Hat 9 and RHEL ?

I'm a newbie, and I was amazed to find innumerable mentions of the Red Hat Linux "Enterprise". I understand that we'll have to pay to use it, on account of logos and stuff, and a lot of support comes with it.

What I wanted to know was the difference between the Red Hat 9 Linux "normal" and Enterprise Edition. What sets the Enterprise edition apart from the "normal' edition?

Well for one the fact that the "normal" edition has been discontinued for quite some time now. Other than that, why not read redhat's site and list of features and figure it out?

This is what I was told by my boss, who has more of a business perspective on linux than a technical one:

"RedHat Enterprise is basically RedHat 9, as an OS that costs something, with the guarantee of stability and professional support along with updates directly from the people at RedHat."

Of course RH9 is already "out of date" in the sense that RedHat has officially dropped support for it, and according to the redhat site, fedora is the next logical upgrade from RH9, if you're not persuing the more corprate route.
