Actually I thought Johnny's response was the epitome of
professionalism considering the invective of the response he was
And he's right. If you don't like it you are not forced to
continue using the product. The original poster seems to feel
that he is owed something which he is not. People are free to
believe what they wish, of course, but the reality of the
situation might very well be something completely at odds with
their mistaken beliefs.

Get real. It's a full baked, 100% binary, API and ABI compliant
rebuild of the upstream vendor's enterprise linux product. Said
product, I might add, being the most popular and well entrenched
commercial enterprise linux product in the world. If you,
somehow, take that to mean that CentOS isn't an enterprise grade
distribution then you are, I must say, quite deluded.

Wow. You've access to a bargepole? Neat beans.
Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, they will not care
how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you
have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to
worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have
lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.
