It seems to me that comments fall into two categories:
1) "I'm not worried because ... " + explanation of how Open Source projects evolve, survive, etc
2) "I don't want my customers seeing this"
Even if one understands that CentOS, under one name or another, won't disappear overnight, some customers - or worse, potential customers - won't see it that way. It's unprofessional at best.
It would be easy for someone researching the validity of choosing Linux as a business platform that CentOS and, by extension, Linux is run by amateurs. It doesn't matter what the truth is: perception is everything.
