Though, Red Hat Professional Workstation is a different product than
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS, albeit based on the Red Hat Enterprise
Linux code. My understanding is that the initial product life cycle is
at least 12 months, after which you would upgrade to the successor
(just as with the Red Hat Linux 8.0/9 model). I think the future of
the product and its life cycle depend much on how popular it becomes
without making Enterprise WS less attractive.
