We are talking about ADDITIONAL variant, not changing current release of
CentOS. Many people that come to Linux are lured in by stability of
Linux. And when they are burned by problems with Fedora or Ubuntu, they
start to search of rock solid distro, regardless of little older apps.
Because majority of Windows users never update their app anyway. And
they are happy using older versions as long as they work as they should.
CentOS has best opportunity to be embodiment of Linux people ask for, it
has very solid foundations that do not brake (easily). So if upper
levels are replaced by app dependency (not really a case except for
codecs), that is fair trade-off, especially if chosen version is bug
free, and/or maintainers provide little bug-fixes for that release, and
they do not rush into providing newer version with newer bugs.
