Download of the day CentOS 5 CD / DVD ISO

last updated in Categories Linux, Linux distribution, News, RedHat/Fedora Linux, Save money with FOSS

CentOS 5 has been released. It is only a few weeks behind the release of RedHat Enterprise Linux 5. We run at least 100+ servers using CentOS. CentOS also used at my as development workstation. If you don’t want to pay Redhat (RHEL) money, use CentOS 🙂


From the announcement list:

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS-5 for the i386 and x86_64 Architectures.

CentOS-5 is based on the upstream release 5, and includes packages from all variants including Server and Client. All upstream repositories have been combined into one, to make it easier for end users to work with. And the option to further enable external repositories at install time
is now available in the installer.

Further Arch support for PowerPC, IA64 and Sparc are planned and will be released soon. These arch’s will follow the existing pattern of release to Beta first, and then to Final.
