      Agreed 100%.

      Seems Red Hat is destined to continue producing only toyware by their
      prima donna alleged "developers".

      The messages I poster earlier today from /var/log/gdm/:0-greeter.log.4
      are a clear sign Red Hat has NO QA procedures in place and RH software
      is not to be trusted. Logins used to work fine and they regressed it
      as can be seen here:

      <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=666220>
      and
      <http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/linux/message/60489>

      Mike Grima (at Red Hat) claims they won't fix their new and regressed
      login problems introduced in 6.0 until 6.3 or 6.4.

      That's ridiculous; their present (stock) login presentation is a
      security mess with all valid user names displayed on the screen
      whenever the login window does appear.

      That's it. It's clear Red Hat does NOT produce enterprise quality
      software.

      *P*O*O*F*, CentOS will be history here later today after I download
      and install/replace it with a real OS. I wasted 6 weeks of my time
      "playing" with a toy POS non-enterprise-level distro since March 11,
      2012. Speaking of which, they still never fixed the Live CD bug I
      reported in 2008:

      <http://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=3123>

      and mentioned here again on April 11, 2010 (2+ years ago):

      <http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/linux/message/57300>

      Seeing how they (Red Hat & CentOS) support their stuff, anyone using
      their software may want to rethink using it for any real tasks in the
      business world.

      Doesn't leave many choices: Arch Linux is one, and the *BSDs are
      another, and I favor FreeBSD which is used on my website and has a
      demonstrated history of reliability.
