Centos is RHEL(Red Hat Enterprise Linux) with the proprietary bits(mostly logos) removed. It has a five year plus support life and is free to install/upgrade(unlike RHEL). RHEL/Centos5 was based on FC6, so it will feel very familiar to you. You could wait (maybe mid Feb?) for Centos 6 to be released(Based on Fedora 12 or 13).
I agree and think the local approach is much more painless haha! I would need one of the tech's at the datacenter to perform the upgrade task... would them downloading the latest version of Fedora linux and burning it to a cd or dvd suffice? Would it be a straight forward upgrade from 4 to 14 or ???
What do you think?
p.s. I actually have CentOS5 on another box and I love it!
