If your distrust of Red Hat is so high, one has to wonder why you're
using CentOS at all.

No insult or deprecation intended, it's just that there are many Linux
options around, enough of them free.

Personally, I like the stability and reliability of CentOS (RHEL)
enough to put up with any inconveniences I have found so far.
Besides, the support on this list is sublime.
