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 
the Amazon.

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 
saying there is nothing to do to run a RedHat installation, but surely 
it is a different kind of process from Debian, or Gentoo, or...  And 
rightly so.

Aren't you better off running Debian for yourself and Redhat for the 
boss/client?  And developing two saleable skills at once.

None of my business, of course...
