probably no one here wants to take on your personal experiences, no  
matter how vivid they may be to you...

Not a complete disaster. CentOS is a viable free/libre OS that serves  
nicely as an alternative to a paid version and is a handy incubator  
for Red Hat regardless of that not being a project goal. I have made  
some criticisms of the release and development model on this list but  
I also made a suggestion of how to address it and am willing to work  
toward resolving some problems I see. All points absent from your mail.

What in particular do you suggest?
