But then why would you want to use CentOS for it or even pay for RHEL if
you can have all this packaged nicely in FreeBSD? Plus, as a long term
Unix and Linux user I feel much more at home on FreeBSD these days than I
feel on CentOS 7 or 8. Even Fedora provides Tomcat 9 which I'm calling an
enterprise feature. How can an enterprise distribution lack such an
important and widely used feature?
