Red Hat "CentOS is an enterprise class GNU/Linux distribution based on the publicly available source packages of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Just like RHEL or Debian stable, CentOS focuses on stability and security, sacrificing the 'latest and greatest' packages. Is CentOS 5 really that stable? And does it fit on the average Joe's desktop? This is what I'm gonna find out."

I use CentOS, it's the only Linux distro I use, and it works fine. It's just a little difficult to find software, much less software than on Ubuntu for instance. CentOS is a little rough around the edges, but after a few tweaks it's a pretty nice Gnome desktop. Here's a list of tutorials that I wrote that make the CentOS desktop better (I'm not earning money from ads, so be nice and don't mod me down ;)

I hope this helps some of you who would like a better experience with a nice Gnome desktop.
