Centos offers free and very reliable Linux with free and very reliable

The people providing this free service are volunteers.

You come here for the free and very reliable product whilst wanting to
spend money on a different product. Perhaps you should have spent your
money several months ago and then subscribed to the Oracle mailing list?

I come here because I like Centos. I admire and respect the volunteers
who make Centos the great product it is. I've seen it used all around
the world running Apache.

Nonsense. Centos is definitely not about to die. Especially not with
some still on version 4.9 ;-)  Versions 5.6 and 6 will come. 6 will be
useful because it has a latter kernel adapted for the Arduino
microcomputer boards.

Good luck with Oracle. Hope it makes you happier.

With best regards,
