Well, in the past when talking to professors I work for, I had to argue
the choice of system I set up on their group servers/number crunchers.
They often prefer what they know works best for their collaborators, which
often is RHEL, or "Scientific Linux". I don't want hassle to maintain
RHEL, and, let's say, I have my opinion about "Scientific Linux". When I
want them to agree to go with CentOS I was usually saying "it is binary
compatible with RHEL". Which though not strictly true, but is very close
to be true, and in one phrase settles the argument. But with all new
different schemes of naming, I avoid saying it now. So, I perfectly
understand the frustration of those who have to explain their managers
version relations etc.
