$300 a year for my up2date subscriptions. So yes. They were on my 5 boxes.
$300/year when all I need is up2date access for patches seems like they
could make a profit off me. Also I do consulting for many companies, and in
every case I would tell them to use up2date.

Because as of December there will be no security fixes for RH 7.x / 8.x so
it is as on topic as some of the other stuff on this list.
