I have small business clients in exactly this position and they are very, very unhappy with the recent news. They have been willing to spend money to buy Red Hat and RHN subscriptions for their servers. They had been forming plans to move their Windows workstations to Red Hat. Those plans have all come to a screeching halt.
However, you say that business and consumers have different needs but I suspect a lot of businesses (at least small ones) have gone down the redhat route not realising that you were going to either force them onto a yearly upgrade cycle or have to pay >5 times(minimum) what they way paying for updates for each machine so that they don't have to upgrade each year.
