There are going to be mistakes ... just like there are for the bleeding
edge distros.

The question is, do the important issues get fixed quickly.

For the vast majority of them, the answer is yes.

Only one of those issues is really important in the Server market, which
is what 90% (or more) of both CentOS and RHEL users actually use the
distros in production.  And that one issue, the kernel NUMA scheduler,
is being actively worked very hard by both Red Hat and CentOS:



Also. one can not complain about the price ... at least of CentOS.

The Red Hat engineers do an outstanding job ... the amount of work they
do is tremendous and the quality is superior.  Feel free to shift to
another distribution if you think you can find one with a better track
record that lasts for ten years.
