For those who haven't been following this story since it came out two  
weeks ago, CentOS and Scientific Linux are unaffected by this move. They  
both strive for cloning completely what comes from Red Hat, then adding  
their own touches on top. It's specifically aimed at Oracle, which tends  
to tinker more with internal specifics of the kernel.
