    Fedora: Community based distro which contains ONLY free software and is free as in libre

    RHEL: It's Red Hat's OS for Enterprise and Business. Is usually can be brought only with a Red Hat Subscription and so is effectively paid software. However you can anytime take its source code and compile it as your wish. CentOS for instance is 100% RHEL compatible free OS.

    @desiibond: While that maybe practically true, however that's not correct since RHEL is used extensively on workstations and can even be used in a desktop while Fedora it self would make an excellent choice as an OS for servers as well. :)

    Read the title: :p
    http://www.redhat.com/rhel/

    And see this:
    http://www.redhat.com/rhel/desktop/

    And as for Fedora as server:
    Just install the command line version without the GUI. (can install GUI if you wish)
