Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
[ Thanks to Lee Schlesinger for this link. ]
CentOS is built from the freely available sources for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.6 (RHEL) and supports 32- and 64-bit x86
architectures. Since it depends on Red Hat releasing the sources,
CentOS is always behind the current Red Hat release.
"RHEL 5.6 was released in January 2011, and CentOS 5.6 followed
last month. I downloaded and tested the latest version and found
that CentOS remains a trustworthy server solution. System
administrators familiar with any of the CentOS 5 releases will feel
immediately at home with this release."
