CentOS exists to provide a free enterprise class computing platform which is built
from publicaly available open source provided by a prominent North American Enterprise Linux vendor (Redhat Enterprise). CentOS
conforms fully with the upstream vendors redistribution policies and aims to be 100% binary compatible.
(CentOS mainly changes packages to remove upstream vendor branding and artwork.). CentOS is designed for people
who need an enterprise class OS without the cost or support of the prominent North American Enterprise Linux vendor.
