Absolutely-- but you'll note that even though the issue was customer
inflicted, their FIRST response was to say "CentOS isn't supported!"
Had the customer been running RHEL, there wouldn't have been a 50 hour
delay between "CentOS is the problem!" and "Er, looks like it was an
extra package the customer had installed." "Works on RHEL, you're
running CentOS," while a canard in most cases, is very easy for a
support organization to trot out. Of course, your mileage may vary...
