I think with Redhat buying the full version gets you access to RHN, It
tracks your actual config and allows you to easily download and install
updated (and tested) RPMs.  I think that is their main selling feature.

With SUSE, I think the full version has monitoring tools that are not
included in even the PRO version.  Likely non-GPL stuff, but I'm not

Another issue is ACLs.  I don't think the full Redhat release supports
them.  I don't know about Fedora.
