Works With Distributions
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Specifications
CentOS is an Enterprise-class Linux Distribution derived from sources freely provided to the public by Red Hat Enterprise Linux. CentOS conforms fully with the upstream vendors redistribution policy and aims to be 100% binary compatible. (CentOS mainly changes packages to remove upstream vendor branding and artwork.) Each CentOS version is supported for 10 years (by means of security updates). A new CentOS version is released approximately every 2 years and each CentOS version is periodically updated (roughly every 6 months) to support newer hardware. This results in a secure, low-maintenance, reliable, predictable and reproducible Linux environment. CentOS-6.3 for i386 and x86_64 Architectures became available in July 2012.

A sturdy horse, that will take you slowly but surely all the way up the hill.

CentOS, based on RedHat, provides an excellent solution for a server distro.

Just remember to disable SELinux right after you install, or you'll be providing the support forums with lots of work...
