Well, I can't read this different from "Red Hat stops delivering a
freely available Linux distribution", which I consider bad news :-(.

Related to "freely available": it's not completely clear what the
"Licensing: open source" and the "Downloads: source only, or ..."
in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux column on the above referred page
*exactly* means w.r.t. what people/companies outside Red Hat may
or mayt not do with it.  I guess I have to read the trademark-related
pages at the Red Hat site for that?
