No, let's NOT talk to marketing people about this - all they care about is
making money by making stuff look nice and remove all the wrinkles in
photoshop! Kinda like the above....

IMNSHO, commercial support for Centos comes from consultants that could use
the page for small advert blurbs. The community advantage to that comes from
the safety net this spins under end-users: if the consultant which set-up
your company's servers goes away, then you as a user can look at this list
and find somebody that can take over the job.
