Good post. Red Hat is really doing lots and lots of good OSS work which unfortunately often goes unnoticed, comparing them to Microsoft is stupid.

However as I use both CentOS and Ubuntu I find it sad that you included an incorrect flame against Ubuntu. Your link shows packages which are in the separate "multiverse" repository (not enabled by default) for non-free packages. Debian also have a separate repository like this, and having it is hardly the same thing as promoting closed standards. A better exempel of Ubuntu doing something bad regarding free software would be that they include NVIDIA and ATI binary drivers on their CDs.
