I have mixed emotions about this concept. Frankly, RH has made small companies
and individuals feel they really aren't worth their trouble. Their licensing
scheme is, in my opinion, not very "community" oriented. They've decided to
pattern it more after Microsoft. They don't want money from end users. They
cancelled their end user desktop to focus on corporate users. The primary
reason I don't ru RH officially is due to this attitude. I appreciate the
Centos dev team for putting Centos together and would much rather donate to them.
