    "CentOS is an Enterprise-class Linux Distribution derived from sources freely provided to the public by a prominent North American Enterprise Linux vendor. CentOS conforms fully with the upstream vendor's redistribution policy and aims to be 100% binary compatible. (CentOS mainly changes packages to remove upstream vendor branding and artwork.) CentOS is free.


    CentOS is developed by a small but growing team of core developers. In turn the core developers are supported by anactive user community including system administrators, network administrators, enterprise users, managers, core Linux contributors and Linux enthusiasts from around the world.

    CentOS has numerous advantages over some of the other clone projects including: an active and growing user community, quickly rebuilt, tested, and QA'ed errata packages, an extensive mirror network, developers who are contactable and responsive, multiple free support avenues including IRC Chat, Mailing Lists, Forums, a dynamic FAQ."[1]

    Please visit CentOS.org and support their distribution at http://www.centos.org/modules/tinycontent/index.php?id=23

    This introduction to CentOS is encouraging. I have explored several distros in the past, but always found it so different from Windows that I gave up.

    Now I am not working full time, I mean to persevere.

    For those that dont like command line there is a free tool call Webmin (http://www.webmin.com/). It is a tool that I used when I first learned Linux. It was very helpful at the time and as my skills grew I no longer needed a GUI. You can always use the MAN pages to also help you with commands.

    What I know about CentOS is that it is a created using RedHat Enterprise Linux source code. CentOS may have all the features of original RedHat Enterprise Linux.

    CentOS DVD file size is huge about 4 GB.

    Is there any good CentOS installation tutorial here?

    Can I learn RedHat Enterprise Linux using CentOS?

    That North American Vendor is RedHat. :)

    CentOS has been building my career for the past 8 years with my entry into WHM/cPanel. Now, I'm cPanel certified and I'm glad I stuck with learning CentOS!

    Debian was my first, still my favorite OS, but CentOS by far fills my wallet up more. :)

    Why do you choose this distro ? I don't understand why it's better than debian, i'm upset.

    It's not better. It's not worse. It's just different.
    The same reason one chooses Linux, FreeBSD, OSX, OpenBSD, ReactOS, BeOS (Haiku), Open Indiana.... etc
    Or the same reason I sometimes drink a porter, or sometimes a hef.
    Variety my friend, variety.
