Let's be honest here. Most serious, as in real world day to day business relying on it, users of an Enterprise OS aren't going to really care about jumping on a new major version the moment it's released or even a month or three late for that matter. No sane admin is frothing at the mouth to toss an OS they haven't personally tested with their setup upon release when the existing OS is working well and still supported.

What hurt CentOS wasn't so much the slowness of release, but the relative lack of communication about tangible progress/holdups and community rumblings around the reasons for the slow release.
