It's about services stupid
Marc Fluery built what many people think was the perfect Open Source business - JBoss developed its own technology and sold deployment and support expertise on top of that.
JBoss was a 'services' business not a shrink wrap license (or subscription) business.
You've now got essentially a license shifting business (Red Hat) trying to up sell the commercially licensed version JBoss with little evident internal resource to justify the subscription fee.
It's well known that lots of good commercial and technical people from JBoss left after the Red Hat acquisition.
Just because Red Hat has built a successful subscription-based business around RHEL doesn't mean they can do the same with JBoss.
