I'm using Fedora for some workstations and non-critical (web) server that we 
have here which mostly just for the internal development / testing / server 
to share our work, etc.
We are using RHEL 3 WS for our production server that host serveral education 
websites and mail server. We got the price break because we moved before 
feburary (or something like that). Next year is going to be even better with 
Academic version. 

For my own workstation I'm using RHEL 3 WS Academic version , which is a very 
good price I think.

I don't know about that, but eventhough if you download them, you'll get no 
support from Redhat, no updates, etc.

There is the options of Redhat Professional Workstation, which is basically 
RHEL WS for a much reduced price. You get the box and the RHN subscribtion 
for updates. Check the RH website.
