Might I change from Fedora to CentOS in my new servers?


My hosting service doesn't provide Fedora servers anymore, and they offer only CentOS servers.

I'm now a real Fedora expert , and I don't know if I must change to CentOS in the new servers I acquire.

- Does it take too much time to learn CentOS?
- Is CentOS very similar to Fedora?
- Is CentOS more stable than Fedora?

Thank you very much.

Fedora and CentOS look and feel remain the same (almost).
Fedora has its roots from Redhat Linux and CentOS has its basis on Redhat Enterprise linux
so, feel brave and go ahead with CentOS. (CentOS is not a new OS but just a name for
the communicty supported free Redhat Enterprise linux clone).

CentOS is more stable than Fedora as it is based upon Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Fedora is the Community project of Red Hat and includes latest developments of which some may be included in RHEL over time as they are proven to be stable.
