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!

Kind of. Scientific OS doesn't really care if its exactly compatible with RHEL. Centos obsesses about that kind of thing.



The code base is pretty much the same, different branding. That's about it.

IMO The main difference between the two projects are their web presence, forums mainly. Scientific Linux has managed to outpace CENTOS in keeping up with RHEL release schedule, if anything. But that had more to do with personal issues with some of the members managing the CENTOS project at the time.
