Please do not write false claims!

If you know about problems, send evidence

There are more then 100 bug reports in the redhat bugtracking system (just 
change your view to see all closed but unfixed bugs) that confirm problems with 
the binaries distributed by redhat and the users who reported the bugs confirmed 
that upgrading to recent original software fixed the problem.

It is pretty obvious that redhat does not care about it's users...
