I assume you're referencing RH's other products, like Ansible, etc? I 
work in academic research, and I've never come across anyone using those 
other commercial products from RH, so I think my world (academic 
research) could easily transition to Ubuntu if necessary. In fact, over 
the past few years, I've heard of several clusters running Ubuntu, and I 
see more and more people running it on their laptops, so it could be 
that we are already transitioning to Ubuntu. Unfortunately, I don't have 
enough data to know if those instances I know of represent any real trend.
