Yggdrasil -> Slackware -> RedHat/Mandrake (can't remember order..) -> Gentoo -> LFS -> Slackware -> Ubuntu/Debian + CentOS @ Work
Sure, I'll help you by also enabling a controlled password lock, and you will allow me to remote wipe your device when you get laid off. I've no problem supporting you, but it the process and procedures and protocols are in place to mitigate data loss, sorry - your not getting WORK email on your iDevice unless it's company supported, and I put *IT* control on it. Fair?
OK, OK.. I'll bite: But can it run Crysis... and imagine a Beowulf clust... nevermind!
And... that's the whole point of Fedora vs RHEL. This has been discussed everywhere for years.
Users want something free - thats Fedora. OEMs and Vendors want something with long term support and accountability - which costs money. Thats RHEL, which you pay for.
All the companies that switch to CentOS, fine with me - but play nice, and buy at least 1 support contract/license from Red Hat. It's a nice way of saying thanks to the main company doing all the hard work.
They should go back to a freely downloadable, but unsupported version.
It's called Fedora.... Also known as the upstream source for RHEL.
