Overall Satisfaction with CentOS

We use CentOS for all of our Linux hosting servers that is over 2000+ servers in production and about 70% of them uses different versions of CentOS its a great alternative to RedHat which charges licensing fees whereas CentOS is opensource and perfect for our and our clients' needs.

  • Issues reported take a while to get corrected.
  • No licensing fees
  • Secure environments
  • Easy to upgrade
CentOs is the standard in the hosting industry when it comes to different versions of Linux OSs, it's almost an exact clone of Redhat so it fits in with every need pretty well as well as it being free to use as it is opensource. Ubuntu is a great desktop OS.
CentOS is well suited for Linux-specific operations, although you can run a VM on it and install Windows, it is best to use it has the native operating system. Where it's not suited for is for Desktop or any solutions where it calls for Windows OS. Over all CentOS can be used with alternative softwares that require windows.
