badly prepared AMI

The low score for this AMI certainly isn't because of the RHEL - that indeed is a very nice OS overall. Not much to say there.

However this default AMI which most of the people are going to use is just a basic/default installation of @Base - and that has a problem that it includes unneeded bloat, eg. WiFi firmware & drivers and so on.
Amazon Linux takes about a 1GB and something after installation and also comes with AWS tools. This RHEL installation takes up almost 2GB and even doesn't have the AWS tools...

Until this AMI is at least *a bit* crafted for AWS I'll have to stick with creating a custom AMI.
