Hah! New keyboard revenge:
No, sir, *you* suck.
I am responsible for an extremely sensitive real time transaction system.
My company operates in a bit of a panic mode due to the nature of the revenue flow. We ma*e contingency plans for even tiny things. The CEO is absolutely brutal over any thing that smells li*e ris*.
What really burns is the lac* of a decent budget.
It's called being prudent. And you can *iss my hairy balls.
* my "cay" *ey just bro*e. Cats + water glass with straw on des* = straw-now-cat-toy and wet *eyboard.
It's about money. No budget for Redhat.
This whole story is unnerving.
CentOS is widely used in datacenters due to it's red-hattyness, it's Long Term Support, and conservative adoption of whizbang.
It's by far my favorite distrobution for important servers.
I have already had two meetings over this and had my team start their proposals for alternate LTS distros and a migration plan. I am sure I am not the only one.
If the CentOS project manages to remove this single point of failure I think confidence will return. But I think I'll keep my projects going for a while just in case.
