No More Free Beer?

I'm a long-time RedHat user administering a number of servers in a commercial environment. To me, the issue isn't free beer, it is value for money. I fully recognize the right of distributors to charge for distribution, and I don't expect a free ride. But the current RedHat policy of making me buy a very expensive "Enterprise" license for every server I'm running has alienated me.
I'm switching to Debian, and if the switch goes well, I'll donate to them. Since we don't run any commercial Linux software, the switch isn't a big deal. RedHat has done good things for Linux, but I simply can't afford to continue with them.
