Heh, thanks for the chuckle - I needed that!
Other options of course is to talk to Red Hat sales about working
some licensing options. I'm pretty sure Red Hat a rep has been on the
fedora mailing list saying they are willing to talk about .edu about
I agree with Tom's posting here, quite well written. I spoke with
couple reps from RedHat and there's a deal whereby if you buy the RHEL
Proxy ($2500 USD, incl RHAS), you can get Enterprise workstation for $25
USD/seat in quantities over 100.
That's one hell of a price break - so 100 seats comes out to $5000 -
Which I feel is a good price. Unfortunately the Head of the Department
doesn't. He also doesn't understand that it's going to cost a good
chunk of change to migrate to another distro in terms of worker hours.
I absolutely love Redhat. Sadly enough - the way things are going, it's
really going to suck having to stop using it here. Make no mistake!
I'm not blaming redhat for this.
Thanks for your response,
