Restrictions on Markedtplace VMs makes them essentially useless

The volumes booted from the AMI base image are locked to the instance they are deployed to. Limits the CentOS AMI to specific use-cases - none of them mine.

The most frustrating part is that soooo many "community" AMIs are based on these base AMIs. The results ? Many of the 'community' AMIs are actually a derivative of this marketplace AMI - requiring licensing and limited in everyway as the CentOS AMI. And you typically don't discover this until you have configured, provisioned and launched you're instance ( the instance launch fails ).

Thanks for nothing.
