More to the point: OpenSuSE appears to be the community flavor of SLES,
just as Fedora is the community variant of RHEL.

If I were to reject SLES due to cost in favor of Fedora, presumably I'd
reject RHEL for the same reasons, and it would be silly to ignore

We don't have any money for ANY OS so, yes I would have to dismiss RHEL for Fedora. And I do that already. All of our machines here run either Centos, Fedora, or Ubuntu. We do have a windows 2008R2 server that we were able to purchase with grant money for a project but it limited us to only windows.


I will look into the OpenSuse project and see if it will do what we want. I have not used any Suse distro in about 13 years so it may take some re-learning!
