I think centos should be faster, I would like to donate money to centos team. How much do your team need per year?

About 3 years ago, Redhat took over CentOS and employed all the core devs to produce CentOS in the future. As far as I know, monetary donations are no longer accepted.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!

That's not a good news, maybe redhat will cut down centos project in future.

Since the maintainers were doing the work in their spare time before that and now have permanent paying jobs devoted to maintaining CentOS, I suspect it's more stable now than it was before.

The business reason CentOS is that CentOS goes to market with new features and the users do testing and use features in real world situations.
By the time the features get adopted into Red Hat they have been through bug fixes and can officially be supported for enterprise use.

CentOS (hopefully) FOREVER!

That would be Fedora you're thinking of. That is the distribution with newer features, some of which are adopted by Red Hat later.

CentOS has exactly the same features as the version of Red Hat it's based on.
