Redhat Enterprise download OS

I created a redhat account and in the downloads, i seem to be able to download the Redhat Enterprise OS without paying the $349? if i don't need support, can i still download and install RH enterprise?

Last question, which RH enterprise do I download? What's ES AS WS?

Thanks.

You can download and install it, but after the trial period has expired, you won't be able to get system updates. for that reason if you don't want to pay, i suggest you rather go for CentOS or Scientific Linux, which both are free clones of Red-Hat.

ES is Enterprise Server, AS Advanced Server, and WS Workstation.

one thing I've just noticed, you must be looking at a very old download site. The current version would be rhel 6.4. So if you download any of those ancient versions you wouldn't get updates anyway as they are obsolete.

I'm not sure of all the differences between ES and AS, as far as I know AS supports more than 2 CPU's.
