Agreed! I think the point here is that some of us are recommending,
based on experience, what we feel is a better package than the one
RedHat provides. Obviously a vi versus emacs type of choice, everyone
likes what they like. But as a new linux/CentOS user, Fernando can
benefit from our knowledge.

I don't get this paragraph at all, but...ok. Noone said there's
something wrong with vsftpd, just that we like something else. For me
personally, I love the Apache style config, the easy virtual users
setup, and the chroot on by default stuff. Purely a choice on my part -
I love choice, I'm a linux nerd.

A valid point. But again, others of us think that the tool RedHat
provides may not be the best one to learn. Your use of legacy here is
incorrect, though -- ncftp is still shipped in Fedora Core 3, so I guess
it has to be a license or support issue (ie like the mysql-server RPM,
they didn't want to support it in RHES3).
