The only bad things I have seen RH do are their refusal to support good 
file systems (as the size of disks hit 2GB at the end of the year, this 
is going to bite them harder than it is now), and some of the choices 
they have made in their kernel.  Other than that, they have been a good 
OSS citizen.
