Maybe you could point out to your clients that, sometimes, paying a little for your software actually saves them work.
I guess you couldn't save any work by paying for RedHat, but after I was last persuaded by a vendor to install RedHat for free on a larger system ... well, I would have spent somewhat less time with SUSE, trying to straighten out the glitches in the setup. No offense to the vendor, they did a lot of the ground work smoothly, but ...
I also know that paying is not everything - the most expensive specialized distribution I've ever seen shipped a kernel with a rather bad memory leak in our installed version ... and refused to even comment on that when I asked for the guaranteed support. Not so excellent either.
