Re:How to kill free software in the enterprise

Alot of posts here seemed unhappy with the way the article was written. No hesitation to bash the good Red Hat clone.

Here is what I see in the last few years I have been reading comments from various media outlets, forums, blogs, etc.:

Whenever a distro gains in popularity, some people will find anything to discredit it. Look at the popularity of Ubuntu, PCLinuxOS, LinuxMint, for examples. I saw endless bashing of these distros: they are a rip-off of Debian/Mandriva, they are just Debian/Mandriva with dressed up desktop, they don't contribute anything back, blah blah blah, etc.

These people totally ignore the GPL license which grants anyone the right to rebuild these distros anyway they see fit.

Hypocrisy if you ask me.


Return to CentOS 5 is a solid enterprise OS
