I think you are defining "successful" as actually meaning
"commercially profitable".  I think one of the things that originally
made "free" software good was that it wasn't written with
profitability and revenue stream considerations in mind, and
I have some concerns that companies like RH will become more and
more like Microsoft - you can already see it in the marketing
language on their web sites.
