If you like RPM based installs, and you like the work Red Hat have done
around Fedora, why don't you reward them for it?

You can get RHEL for less than a buck a day:


See the Basic subscription for RHEL two sockets or less.

In doing so, you are funding Red Hat, and Red Hat pays many hundreds of
F/OSS developers.  You get updates, bug fixes, new versions of RHEL when
they come out, and so on.  Everyone wins.

Just my two cents.
