And this complaint has to fall onto RedHat. Slightly underestimating the 
job CentOS team is doing, one could say: CentOS in just a binary replica 
of RedHat Enterprise.

And again, we use distributions for what benefit they give us, and any 
trouble we may encounter, we have just ourselves to blame for the choice 
we had made. And I here am not restricting the choices we could have 
made to variety of Linux flavors, but include in general anything one 
could use: a bunch of BSD descendants, MacOS (which server 
administration wise I excluded from chain BSD --> Darwin --> MacOS 10, 
or rather ignore that to be a chain), MS Windows (no, I am not asking 
for shots at me, I for one use FreeBSD for servers, not MS Windows), etc.

I use CentOS on workstation (except for my own_ and numbercrunchers. And 
once again, thanks a lot to the whole CentOS team for the great job, 
you, guys are doing!

Just my abstract view of this.
