On the contrary.  My experience is that the RHEL family is extremely
popular in corporate environments.  And it is almost never connected
to an update network and almost never gets any updates of any sort.
Which provides me with a source of frustration.  But also a source of
income from them needing support dealing with it.  But being on the
approved vendor list it is the one that is used most often in the
corporate world.  Meanwhile not dealing with change well is just one
of the symptoms of why the corporate world has trouble reacting to a
quickly changing environment.
