For non-personal use, nothing has changed as far as I know. WS costs $25,
AS costs $50. There's a RHN proxy on campus you can use to accelerate your
RHN connections. For more details, see

For personal use, the jury's still out. You could always purchase a
regular academic $25/$50 entitlement and use it for your personal
equipment, but if you want to take advantage of the free personal use
license, the short answer is "they're still working on that". I
participated in a conference call this morning with Red Hat, and there is
(finally) forward movement, but nothing I can point to and say "here's how
to do it right now".
