[ lots of fine points snipped ]

I get a chuckle out of this discussion.

All of this discussion about the merits of various distros is fine,
and each has its good/bad points. but in most commercial organizations
all decisions are made by the suits and legal beagles. It matters not
how good and stable the distro is, it only matters that the distro has
a mega-bucks support contract that provides the company with the
warm-fuzzy feeling that they have bought someone to kick around if it
breaks (the old German concept wer haftet dafuer?). Of course, it's
Linux and it almost never breaks, and the mega-bucks are wasted, but
the suits and legal beagles are content.
