And that's the whole problem, isn't it?  :-)  Some of us need more than
"enthusiast", but less than "enterprise"...

I really don't understand why Red Hat couldn't just dump the "boxed set,
store shelf" part of the "consumer" distro and still do everything as
before.  That would cut back most of the costs associated with the
retail channel, yet allow us to keep using a reasonably well-supported OS.

Surely producing a CD-ROM distribution available by subscription only
and charging a low-to-medium amount of money for RHN basic wouldn't be
that much of a money sink...
