I havent followed this entire thread, but most of the comments
I see have to do with the moral issues of using Centos.
Let me interject an alternative reason that Ive always felt
I know several people that have bought honest RedHat Licenses,
and then become so pissed off with the RedHat update system
(I dont remember the details,- perhaps it was scripting,
perhaps it was getting thru our firewall, or perhaps it was
problems in just getting to their server) that they gave
up and do all their updates using Centos...
Somehow I wasnt surprised.
