Red Hat dropped their boxed sets, not their commercial distro. They are
very much still in the commercial enterprise environment. As far as I
know, they and SUSE are still the only 2 distrubitions to offer 24x7x365
support contracts suitable for data center support (along the lines of
HP, Sun, and IBM/AIX).
