Default what people really mean when they say they're running"5.3"?

May be. cat /etc/redhat-release is the easy way

Why install RedHat without a subscription? Because all the
world knows RedHat.
Why not switch to CentOS and get updates?* Because
CentOS is one of the best-kept secrets of the web.
*
How many google searches on RedHat and Updates and License
return a link to the CentOS sites?* The wikipedia entry does, none of the
others in the "first 10" hits, so finding CentOS takes knowing that it's
there.

I do find this behaviour very odd... if you are not intending to get
support from redhat why not just install CentOS in the beginning so you can
still get updates? Ah well...

But then I'd argue that any competent systems administrator looking
after Red Hat systems should be at least aware of derivatives of
RHEL... CentOS being the most commonly thought of but of course
Scientific and Oracle Unbreakable exist as well for differing levels
of support or markets.... and there used to be Whitebox a few years
back too....
