Wikipedia could just as easily have made the switchover to all Red Hat, 
but that would have cost more money, he said. "It would seem to me that 
if money weren't an issue here, there wouldn't be anything keeping them 
from upgrading everything to Red Hat."

Hm. And why then not to Fedora? Or CentOS (sorry!).

Who also thinks, that they will face the same problem (multiple 
versions) with Ubunto in a few years (again)?

If they still had Red Hat 9 servers, they are simply having a problem 
with their operating system life cycle...
