And - rest assured - you will *get* more out of that RHEL license than
from the corresponding XP license.

That's the exact basis of Red Hat's business model.

"Sponge" has a very bad connotation here. We're not "stealing" or
"taking" the software. It's being *given* to us by the awesome folks at
Red Hat and otherwise who hack on it and make it so great. I, for one,
put in effort to repay that in various ways (Extras packaging, general
support contributions, bug reports, seeding torrents of new releases, etc.)

Mozilla Thunderbird also works on Windows. ;)
