you seem mistaken about one thing - there really wasent any real 
userbase problems with this shift. We had hardly any noise at all from 
the userbase ( remember there are a _lot_ of people using CentOS 
directly ). The noise came from only a few people.

again, i dont know what you are trying to imply here. CentOS isnt a one 
man setup, and all the developers talk to each other just fine. Whitebox 
is a one man's part time hobby. I dont even understand how you can 
compare the two.
