Re: Comparing to Fedora / Comparing to Red Hat

My understanding of the Red Hat situation is that it's basically the Fedora situation, except for the (entirely reprehensible) termination of subscription in the event of you redistributing unmodified binaries. I think this lessens Red Hat's authority in the free software community a great deal, but it's still better than Canonical's refusal to provide clarity.
