Yes, but up until aproximately yesterday if you needed to use any c-based
products- DA's for example, you were on your own. Python-only products just
need to be untarred to work, products that need compilation are a real pain.
If I was commited to using Redhat for some reason, I would be required to
modify spec files and build my own rpms for compiled DA's. I would actually
rather use Gentoo, but for other distributions it's still harder than it
needs to be and may prevent people from using Zope.
