RHEL's lag times are fine by me. While I don't work with a giant-multinational corporation, enterprise stability is still of utmost priority to my staff and I. We like that while RHEL stays on top of security issues, they do not make frequent jumps to newer application releases without significant warning.

As far as RHN, if you don't like paying for support, use CentOS. We do for our development and testing environment, and can be assure that it will stay in sync, once the base platform port occurs.

For desktops, our devs use whatever makes them happy. I'm running Fedora 14 right now, and several others are using various debian-sourced releases.

I think the real detriment, as mentioned earlier, was the growing lack of diversity in the distribution sphere.

Projections are that by the end of 2010, it will be in second place behind Symbian, the Nokia-backed OS. This is bad news for Apple and RIM who are projected to fight for third place in the Smartphone market.
