You'd be surprised. Many people like the fact that Red Hat
has the ability to fix bugs in all software it claims is
supported.  Big corporations are very happy when their
suppliers can fix the software problems that inevitably
crop up on the really high end servers.

Nothing worse than investing $200,000 in a machine and
then finding out that the hardware/software combination
wasn't supported after all.  This is a scenario that has
to be prevented at all cost.
