RH has the ability to change this at any time.
ability? yes. willingness? no.
It is not - RH has had no problems in adding yum support and has no
problem in adding and removing other packages at any time at RH's free
Do you know why they had no issue adding yum support? B/c it could be
covered internally. If it broke and I wasn't around to fix it - they
could take care of it.
100+ lines of C++ they were not interested in maintaining.
For example instead of adding yum and keeping up2date, RH could have
tried to help apt. - IMO, this is all politics and not at all
IMO you don't know what you're talking about.
