So why not run with RedHat or Suze? You are surely looking for a
chauffeur-driven kit sports car. Or a Hyatt adventure trail through
Corporations that want to pay for corporate support and packaging get a
pretty good deal from RedHat, and save the direct responsibility of
paying for trained staff to manage their installations. I am not
