Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Alternatives


I decided to write an article about Red Hat, Centos and Scientific Linux. What they are, the differences and where to get them.

http://boardstretcher.github.io/blog...-alternatives/

Feel free to link to it or quote it, or ignore it. Its on Github so there is no advertising, and no tracking. Just something I'm proud of and I wanted to share with our community!

Hopefully its useful.

Yo!

Quick n direct read, ideal for decision makers that really need info on one page, two at most...
Maybe a nice "to add" would be the licencing model.
Maybe you could expand with a comparison table...
Thanks for sharing

one of the BIG differences with
RHEL VS CentOS
is the support

redhat -- 10 year support with security backports to older versions
CentOS 7 year support
( HOWEVER!!!! cent ONLY supports the CURRENT version )
and right now 5.10 and 6.5 and 7.0 are the ONLY supported versions

Scientific linux 7 year support
BUT WITH backports to older versions like RHEL dose
so SL 6.3,6.4 and 6.5 ARE SUPPORTED

SL also has a repo LIMITATION !!!!
not all the cent third party repos are compatible
sl has MORE problems with this than cent has
