A more accurate statement would be "the company has alienated a small number of users". So far the only people that I know of who feel "alienated" by the RH restructure are the ones who haven't taken the time to look at and understand what RH has done. All anyone needs to do is to objectively analyze what the change really is (as opposed to just listening to what others say it is) and they'd see it's nothing to be bothered about or to hold ill will towards RH over. This doesn't mean that switching to a different distro is unthinkable. There are many reasons and situations where moving from RH 7.x, 8.0 or 9 to SUSE or Debian or any other distro is the best thing to do. But that's purily a technical decision. RH has proven that they were correct in making the reallignment they did and because of that Linux (and Open Source in general) are benifiting.
If I actually could spell I'd have spelled it right in the first place.
