ADVERTISEMENTS

From the release note:

CentOS-6.1 is based on the upstream release EL 6.1 and includes packages from all variants. All upstream repositories have been combined into one, to make it easier for end users to work with. 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 6.1 Download

You can download CentOS Linux 6.1 via the web/ftp server or via BitTorrent (recommended).

32 bit vs 64 bit CentOS 6.1 Version

For almost all server usage download 64 bit version to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2 Due, Core 2 Quad, i7Core, i5Core and so on). You can use advanced feature such as hardware error detection, access to more than 4GB RAM and so on.
