The amount of money required for Debian will be a lot less. If a company I

hiring someone from Eastern Europe. We appear to have quite a few Debian
developers from EE countries and many programmers who haven't yet become
developers. The cost of the cheapest SPARC server machine (I mean serious
servers not those crappy T1's) is equivalent to many years salary for a
programmer in EE.
If a company is happy with that option they could pay the same
cheap programmer to work from the redhat base.
