	Actually I thought Johnny's response was the epitome of
	professionalism considering the invective of the response he was
	replying to.

	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.

	Excellent.  May you find happiness and peace there.

	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.

-- Marcus Aurelius (121-180), philosopher and writer
