Member since:

There are a lot of business people in Red Hat that hate the fact that CentOS exists. They just don't get it. The developers there I have talked to do understand.

Given the fact that RedHat goes out of its way to help rebuild RHEL (E.g. by releasing SRPMs instead of tarballs and patches, making EPEL free-for-all, etc), I fail to see any evidence to this supposed opposition.

I care little what some people in RedHat -may- or may not think, I very much care about what RedHat -does-.

2. The people using CentOS are the same people working on Fedora, which is mostly done by volunteers.

Bullshit. Pure and simple.
I -really- suggest you do some reading before posting.
Start by learning the difference between Fedora-proper and EPEL.

P.S. We use large number of CentOS/EPEL machines for development and use RHEL machines for production. This is not an attack on CentOS in any way.
