No offense meant, but let's cut the crap. I did bring some RHEL
customers to RH by migrating them from NT/2k and I had no complains from
the old farts about Exchange missing.

Companies do not migrate from Solaris to RHEL due to 0-changes in the
default install. The business pressure to minimize costs, conformance to
some standards and audits and/or overall performance are the relevant
factors for platform migrations or non-migrations.
