You would be surprised (or maybe not) at how many commercial
applications "require" RedHat 8 or 9. I guess these companies couldn't
handle the shift to Fedora. For instance, Metroworks IDE, is one I have
had to deal with recently. It behaves erratically on Fedora 2. So,
people in my group install RedHat 9 on brand new machines to get support
for their crappy commercial software.
Oh, and do they bother to run up2date or install yum to point at legacy
support? Of course not.
