Support: yes, for years and years
As appealing as it was, the above solution wasn't and isn't sustainable. On top of that, many corporate organisations didn't take Linux seriously until there was paid and reliable support (i.e. a company willing to put its reputation on the line for a Linux distro). Hence RHEL emerged. Part of the profits from sales and support of RHEL are fed back into further development of Linux and many other open source projects.
