I'm not sure what you're talking about here - RHEL Client is not a
"killed" product. It's often misunderstood from Red Hat's
announcements wrt this that they have killed any desktop product. This
is simply untrue. Repeat after me:


What they *have* abandoned, however, is the notion that they can
compete in the consumer desktop space. This was quite a sound business
decision on their part, IMHO. The costs to support a consumer-focused
desktop distribution simply don't fit in the Red Hat model.
