Red Hat The CentOS project, the Linux distribution aimed at the enterprise built from Red Hat's freely available source code, has hit a significant bump in the road: the project's main administrator, Lance Davis, has gone missing-in-action. This is kind of a problem as Davis is the sole administrator fo the domain, the IRC channels - and the CentOS funds.

Yes, Scientific Linux is a valid option made by serious institutions

SL is a Linux release put together by Fermilab, CERN, and various other labs and universities around the world. Its primary purpose is to reduce duplicated effort of the labs, and to have a common install base for the various experimenters.

The base SL distribution is basically Enterprise Linux, recompiled from source.
