That's not what CentOS and White Box do.  They take someone else's
work, remove references to the people that did the work, and package
it up so that you can "freely" use Red Hat's efforts in creating RHEL.

You do understand that they're *required* by Red Hat to remove those
"references to the people that did the work", right?


Yeah, buddy, I am.  I'm not an idiot, I just think what they're doing
is morally wrong.  Capiche?

The tone is a little bit strong I think. But anyway, I guess
that means you dislike the GPL, because this is exactly what
it is intended to foster.

NB: I don't particularly like the GPL, myself, so I'm not
one to argue against. Just pointing something out.

You have found the bank of Larn.
I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
