Linux "Scientific Linux is an unknown gem, one of the best Red Hat Enterprise Linux clones. The name works against it because it's not for scientists; rather it's maintained by science organizations. Let's kick the tires on the latest release and see what makes it special."

Well, yes and no. It was never intended to not be used by the outside world as well. I have been evangelized by some core devs in the past. I would absolutely use it, if it weren't so gosh darn stable. I like my desktops to break every now and then from unstable packages that I can learn important lessons by fixing them. Like having multiple offsite versioned backups of important documents at all times ;)
