No, what I need is an operating system from a vendor who understands 
that server life needs to be more than a year.

Yes.  I talked to RH sales.  An .edu gets a completely different price 

And servers don't get "per seat" licenses.

That was my point.  You can make it yours, though, if you wish <smile>.

I just joined that list, and I'm looking forward to seeing something 
besides a webpage.

I think it's time for me to bow out of this thread.  I believe I've made 
it clear I love RHL and I love linux, and I'm frustrated by RH's 
direction.  I answered the original post and I don't control this 
thread, but I'm going to bow out.
