I would recommend reading Jonathan Carter (our super cool Debian Project
Leader), blog entry about what's happening with CentOS:

I agree with all of what he wrote. All of it from beginning to end. and
that's why I've been using and contributing to Debian, and advocating
that OpenStack users and operators move to it.

No, neither Red Hat or Canonical have "your best interests in mind", and
they "ultimately supports [their] selfish eco-system" and own corporate
greedy interests, to quote Jonathan.
