RHAT is pretty well regarded and is in fact the posterboy for being a good open-source corporate citizen. So I don't see what your beef with them is. CentOS will logically also disappear if RHAT ever fails, so what's wrong with ppl paying their dues?
Also, Corbet's observations are entirely valid, whatever minute benefit they may have for RHAT here on LWN.
Sorry, but I don't see how your post is helpful to other readers. Which is kinda the point of posting, right?
