"The developers of Scientific Linux have released version 6.0 of their Linux distribution for x86-32 and x86-64 systems. Mainly driven by Fermilab, CERN and other universities and research institutes, the project provides free models of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), which is sold in a subscription plan. To make it available for free, protected components (such as Red Hat trademarks) were removed from RHEL's freely accessible sources; in addition, the software was recompiled for installation media to ensure that Scientific Linux retains all of the well-known functions included in RHEL 6.0."
