It is a beautiful thing when organizations can promote each-other resulting in a greater combined product and maximum benefit for the customer.
The synergy between Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and CentOS is an excellent example of rare cooperation and camaraderie in a technology world that is often brutal and cut-throat elsewhere. My hat goes off to the people working on the RHEL and CentOS distributions, your work makes the open source community a better place. The world benefits greatly from your combined efforts.
If you follow RHEL and CentOS news like I do, you will enjoy reading Matt Asay’s recent article over on ReadWriteWeb based on an interview with Jim Whitehurst titled “Red Hat CEO: Go Ahead, Copy Our Software.” Enjoy!
