I'm on JDS R2 - That's a Sun Microsystems product. 
It's not a major one, but its gaining growth rather
fast.  If a Sun customer wants to use Wine (and
they'rre new to the JDS), they can't tell them, "Hey,
don't use our product.  You're better off with Red

Its a solid distro, and I personally wouldn't trade it
for Red Hat.

Food for thought.  Someone shouldn't *have* to use an
RPM if they are a newbie.
