Ah, but don't forget the upstream folks from Fedora, such as the Kernel
guys the Gnome guys, KDE guys etc etc. :-P.

They all help make GNU/Linux distributions what they are today :-).

And yes, I too would like to thank the CentOS team and everyone else for
all their hard work :-). I would help them, and contribute, but aside
from money (Which I don't have at the mo :-( ) I fail to see anything I
can contribute with effectively :-(.

My Fedora 12 is coming to EOL soon, so I must upgrade my Fedora, but I
plan to switch to CentOS6 instead :-) Albeit EL doesn't have XFCE (Last
time I checked) I can sort that out, and a few other things I can easily
fix (make and build custom RPM's for my self)

Fedora 12 has become stable like no other Fedora release for me, so I
hope that has been carried over into EL6 :-) I'm guessing it has. If not
made better :-).

Anyhow, once again: Thanks to all the folk that make CentOS/RHEL/Linux
what it is today :-)
