In contrast, RHEL is a product with a guaranteed level of enterprise
stability that doesn't map directly on to any Debian offering that I
know about (and I am not a Debian offering expert so may well be
wrong;-). RHEL is a product that you deploy when you need to know that
Oracle has tested it and will back you up, HP have tested it and will
back you up and it will stay fully binary compatible and supported for a
number of years after deployment (enterprise vendors picked at random).

Rawhide was more like Debian unstable and Red Hat betas more like Debian
testing in my view.

Please shoot down in flames but this is the way I read the offerings as
a user,

Paul
