redhat sour grapes

Let's take a look at the next paragraph:
"all my hardware was supported, including my NVidia graphics card"
Last time i installed RHEL with an NVidia card, it worked fine, so long as my resolution was 800x600 and had no 3d accelleration. To make it actually useful, I had to go download the drivers from NVidia, make sure the developer package was installed, and have NVidia compile a new driver binary for me, then reboot.
with Ubuntu, the NVidia drivers a just a single click away. And that's why the reviewer included that statement above. Installing Linux with an NVida card, and having it actually work properly out of the box, is a rare thing, even these days. And the fact that it works in Ubuntu is just as much their doing, as it is the NVidia guys'.
Sounds like RedHat is bummed that all the kids (and regular users) are opting for the nicer Ubuntu experience (and getting lots of good deserved PR for it)
Maybe instead of complaining about people happily using/reviewing Ubuntu, you should get off your ass an improve the usability of your distro. And not that beta testing ground Fedora, but for RHEL.
(Disclamer I work for no Linux distro, but have to manage thousands of Linux boxes all day long in render-farm scenarios - and Ubuntu (& Debian) usability far exceeds that of RHEL any day of the week).
