I didn't make the saying up...I've seen it repeatedly from redhat.com
addresses.

All that glitters is not gold but it might be interesting to give SuSE a
whirl.

One of the liabilities of any Linux distro is whether the distro is put
out by a 'for-profit' corporation or not. Red Hat is obviously sensitive
to their stockholders and must derive a profit at the end of the day so
their motives are clearly revenue driven.

Debian is entirely opposite, entirely community supported and no
corporate enterprise to control the direction.

There is no one best answer for everyone.
