Community Enterprise Operating System (CentOS)

If you want to use Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) but can't afford the service fees, then try
CentOS. It's a free version of RHEL. It's essentially the exact same distribution but with most of
the Red Hat branding removed. This is possible since RHEL is open source software licensed
the GNU General Public License (as all Linux kernels are). That means ANYONE can odwnload the
source code, modify it, and recompile it into binaries. That is exactly what the CentOS guys have
done. So now you can get RHEL for free.

By the way, CentOS is up-to-date. It's usually only 1-2 days behind releases of RHEL!
