Well, I use Red Hat on the desktop at work, although I have to use VMware to
get into the evil windoze world. 

Of course, as has already been said Red Hat can clean up in the Enterprise
market. It probably won't be much longer before Microsoft ditches the server
market as it isn't making a lot of money from it. It makes much more money
from other things.

The security issue (relevant to the list) will be all those Microsoft
servers still online that MS doesn't support anymore.
