I agree completely.  CentOS is the best thing since sliced bread.  I've 
got a number of CentOS 3.X (and a few 4.x) systems in production and 
they basically just work, requiring a remarkably small amount of 
maintenance and admin intervention.  If it wasn't for the occasional 
kernel update, most of the machines would have uptimes well in excess of 
a year.  Also, the VAST majority of the people on this list are nice and 
considerate folks.  If you're on the list, it doesn't take long to 
figure out who you personally don't find useful and it's easy to set up 
a simple email filter on your mail client.  And that list is probably 
different for us all.  8-) 

Is USENET still around?  8-)  I gave up on carrying a feed when you 
basically needed a T3 just for the alt.binaries hierarchy...
