Then I went to redhat.com and clicked through some of the content there. I was picking up more details but not as much as I would have liked.
Then I found this article on Linux Format's website that really cleared up a lot of things:
RHEL 5 - from the new, more open Red Hat
Read it for yourself but basically...
Anyone who wants Red Hat on the desktop can get in the game for $80/year.
Anyone who wants Xen virtualization with up to 4 guest OSes can now have that for less than their previous single OS price.
Those who want unlimited Xen virtualization, clustering and cluster storage (GFS) can now get that for some same approx. price they used to charge for just RHEL AS.
Red Hat Network will now update and manage/provision Xen virtual machines.
So, you get more for less.
Red Hat also simplied its support agreement and vows to be more transparent to the community with concrete efforts. The details of these take additional reading but I'm sure the story will get out RSN.
