William, I agree with what you are saying - it is a Free World, and 
people can and should do as they please, however - if there are 
somethings that we could do better at CentOS or if we might be able to 
make the transition easier for people - I'd like to know how. And then 
if possible, maybe address those issues.

And like I just said in another email - CentOS is not the only other 
option, there are others like SciLinux ( and RHEL! )

Finally, apart from the images - what else do you classify as being 
'different' between CentOS and WBEL ?
