Red Hat

With great excitement I'd like to announce that we are joining the Red Hat family. The CentOS Project is joining forces with Red Hat. Working as part of the Open Source and Standards team to foster rapid innovation beyond the platform into the next generation of emerging technologies. Working alongside the Fedora and RHEL ecosystems, we hope to further expand on the community offerings by providing a platform that is easily consumed, by other projects to promote their code while we maintain the established base.

Well, that's certainly a different tune from Red Hat. Welcome though!

Variants are just like Fedora spins.

What it actually means is people will build stacks that interest you directly, giving you a means to get started more quickly.

This isn't the same as Scientifix or Unbreakable because it isn't a bunch of people working on something separate. It is a way to empower people in their particular area of interest.

If you can't figure out which variant you want, you probably shouldn't choose any, you probably shouldn't be considering administration of a Linux box on your own at all.
