Why not use a CentOS or WhiteBox Linux machine for testing code and in predeployement scenarios?

For people deploying 1000 seats of RHEL 3 WS or 50 RHEL ES boxes, the cost savings is substantial.

I agree with that line of thinking.

I'm wondering what the lag-time is between RHEL release and Whitebox release. (Delay between RHEL release and RH release of source, + time for WB to package and distribute.)

Also, how strong is the guarantee that RHEL sources will always be made available under terms that allow WB and others to distribute a near-exact copy of RHEL?
