This is my first post. This also will be my last.
I really must have picked the wrong time to join this list. I joined
b/c I was thinking of switching to CentOS at home. We have RHEL at
work and it is great, I just can't afford the cost for home.
I first went to Whitebox, but that seems to be plagued by slow updates
and a dependency on one person. Then the seriously broken mailing
list removal system happened and the list was flooded with unsubscribe
requests - this was all before the hurricane hit. Most everyone on
that list claimed they were moving to CentOS. So I thought I'd check
What I encountered here is just horrible. I've only seen about a
day's worth of posts, but it is one of the worst flame wars I've ever
seen. I'm of course not going use CentOS either. With a list like
this there will never be any support if I run into a problem. If
CentOS is still around in a year or two and I still have found a good
distro, I'll check and see if anything has improved.
I'd suggest you take Mr. Knaddison's advice below. #2 seems like the
best plan as there will be a forum moderator who can lock threads and
delete posts. At worst a flame will only be visible until the
moderator gets around to delete it.
