Red Hat makes a nice polished product that has a good chance of satisfying Windows users. I'm not especially thrilled with RHEL in general, but it has one thing that most other linux distros don't: name brand tech support. I've used the tech support and had mixed results. Sometimes you get and expert who can quickly solve your problem and sometimes you don't. I've had better luck with the phone support staff than with the web support staff. The important part is that the tech support is there and that just makes managers sleep easier.
