LXer: CentOS 5: Linux for Grownups

Published at LXer:

Some folks love life on the edge, so they run Debian Unstable, or the newest Ubuntu or Fedora releases. These are all wonderful Linux distributions, and under most circumstances are reliable enough. You'll run into weird dependency issues, or find out the hard way that the latest release of an application has a few problems, or that the distribution maintainers introduced entirely new applications that are chock-full of amusing surprises. For the most part they work well, but you never know when they're going to get bored and have a little fun at your expense. Then there are the brave souls who dare to be dull and don't want surprises. They just want their systems to chug along and not need a lot of babysitting. For these fine folks there is CentOS Linux.

I dare to be dull!

I run CentOS on my desktop machine. Its a multi-user machine with an NFS share, rsync, and ssh. It looks good and runs even better. And I'll be able to get updates for for the next seven years if I so choose. So yeah, I love not babysitting it

I used to run CentOS, but I decided it operated a little to slow for me, and I decided to become a purest. (Debian)
