I was the original poster of the comment on "Enterprise Linux sorely needs Red Hat".
I accidentally posted my comment to the wrong article.
My comment was intended for the article on Linux.com (maybe an external link ?) where the reporter was highlighting a business that was proclaiming how they were saving money using CentOS and that Red Hat did not have a value proposition for their business.
For comments posted on how everything is free and all that Red Hat is doing is slapping it together on a CD, maybe they should try to get the stuff themselves from the CVS repositories.
I have been in the software business long enough to recognize that testing, integration, validation, upgrading, quality documentation, knowledgebase maintenance, separating the software that is hyped (e.g., ReiserFS) from software that works (e.g., Ext3) and a global support organization take a lot of time, dollars engineers and facilities.
