Dear All,

Centos works for me, it is indeed a godsend.  I know how much effort it 
takes to create such a distribution and test it.
I am grateful for all the hard effort it takes.

Lets not keep the Centos team tied up with threads like this that really 
do little more that use bandwidth and storage space in the long run for 
no real benefit.

Those people who make good use of Centos know had solid it is, nothing 
more needs to be said, if anyone disagrees, they should vote with their 
feet and go somewhere else, but don't bother flaming people here, 
because it neither necessary nor wanted, nor justified.

Anybody who has the audacity to criticise people who do stuff to their 
very best for free for the benefit of others really, does need grow up 
and have a reality check.

Lets end it here boys and girls, if you don't like Centos then stop 
wasting the time of those of us who do, and push off now.
