CentOS6 to be released in the next few weeks

According to an interview with Karanbir Singh – a major contributor to the project – it is just a question of a few weeks until we can expect CentOS6 to be released.

CentOS is extremely important for the RHEL community, it is a playground for trying out new stuff before getting into an engineering phase with the Red Hat supported RHEL.

Lets have fun with it…

  1. I would also like to point out that Scientific Linux will be out in a few weeks with their version of RHEL 6. They had released beta 3 just last Friday, with a release candidate likely this Friday. They have even created a regular install DVD that mirrors the RHEL 6 install DVD.

  2. I don’t understand what this means
    “it is a playground for trying out new stuff before getting into an engineering phase with the Red Hat supported RHEL.”

    that sounds more like Fedora, CentOS doesn’t lead RHEL it follows it.

    • Hi Andy,

      I was a bit unclear on this. It is more a playground and sandbox to i.e. try out if product X will work nicely with RHEL. It is also a playground to quickly try if something is working like expected.

      From my point of view a RHEL subscription for sandboxes and playgrounds is waste of money, even in the enterprise world. On the other hand, RHEL is the way to go if you put a product or project into production.
