well the OP has not posted back and it is now 8 days later .....

as to people not knowing about cent
well they then never did a google search on the topic

now it is slightly more understandable if they never heard of ScientificLinux
https://www.scientificlinux.org/

or the lesser known rebuild by Fermilab
FermiLinux
http://fermilinux.fnal.gov/

or CERN's rebuild
http://linux.web.cern.ch/linux/

And from that point, until I payed I couldn't download! So either I have the dns changer virus and so do you, or it changes from time to time, which I don't believe, again, I got screwed!

The DNSChanger virus, hard to detect, and almost impossible to get rid of without wiping your drive and getting a new modem. I will give an example of what it does, and this only happens on the websites that it feels like doing it to, ex. Typing the url of this post but then somehow arriving at google, with the url intact.

Which ones? I don't see anyone but you saying it's not free. AGAIN: you pay for SUPPORT and UPDATES. The OS is free, it always has been. Saying it's not over and over, doesn't make it so, especially when you can:
  • Go to their website and read the EULA
  • Call their sales folks, and ask them
  • Ask ANY of the MANY THOUSANDS of folks who have downloaded it free
You're wrong, and remain so.

Wrong. You can download easily, but apparently are doing something wrong. If thousands and thousands of others are doing it, and you can't...the problem is not in the process.

By clicking the DOWNLOAD button, and going to the correct product heading. Again, this works find with both Gmail and Yahoo addresses, providing you don't {obviously) click the CORPORATE button when signing up, which will then REQUIRE a corporate email address.

Sorry, but you're continuing to spread misinformation.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNSChanger

Very hard to detect?
http://www.dcwg.org/

..unless you click a button, presumably. And since the 'virus' affected Windows and Mac's, that leaves Linux untouched. Add to that the fact it was eradicated back in 2011 (two years ago), and ISP's put measures in place to prevent it working, your 'explanation' makes no sense. And how, exactly, would you a virus affect a MODEM, when it has no storage/operating system to infect?

John VV and kooru, and please, this is turning into a fight between you and me and not answers to the OP.

Just because it was eradicated, it doesn't mean older systems don't have it, and I didn't know which system he was downloading from.

@13stein.j: if you ask others to stop then you should stop as well, do you understand? And since the OPs question has been answered three times over by now I think it would be best if you all vacate this thread, move on and fix another problem. Like for example this one...

I am agree with it too, even LQ haven't included it in distribution's list.

This is true, but technically all cent os questions go in the red hat section.
