Les has been around a long time and certainly is knowledgeable about
many forms of UNIX, Linux, Windows and OS X. He seems to enjoy fomenting
discussions about what it is that Red Hat does in general that doesn't
suit him but given CentOS philosophy to track upstream as closely as
possible, there is no possibility that it will the distribution that
will totally satisfy his wants.

I see Ubuntu doing much the same things as Fedora and that probably
won't be as much of a change as he had hoped but c'est la vie. What he
actually wants is a distribution that flips the middle finger to all GPL
& Free License restrictions, comes with proprietary video drivers,
codecs, Sun Java, Adobe stuff, with the latest versions of most
everything but is stable. I hope that he finds it.
