Oh, geez... that's so tired, not to mention a wholly mistaken comparison. All Red Hat is doing is saying that if you buy support through them, they are selling support per machine and they expect their customers to pay for that. If you don't want to pay, use another distro or get the free version of Red Hat and support it yourself. They do have to make money to keep funding the development and so forth that they do.
I'd like to see you download the free version of Windows 2003 Server and source code. It'd be nice if people would stop looking for controversy. Red Hat isn't doing anything Microsoftian here, their customers have quite a bit of choice as to whether they want to enter into this kind of agreement with Red Hat and they have plenty of alternatives if they want to use Linux and don't like Red Hat's terms.
