The CentOS Project is pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS 7 for x86_64, including images for docker, and various cloud providers. There are many fundamental changes in this release, compared to previous releases of CentOS. Notably the inclusion of systemd, Gnome3, and a default filesystem of XFS. For more information about what makes CentOS 7 stand out, please see our release notes.

CentOS 6 can be upgraded to 7, but that functionality is still being tested.

I've personally never understood why we need more than one free clone of RHEL myself (ignoring that Oracle have a paid clone of it too!).


Sometimes I need RH clone fast. Scientific Linux helped a lot with their 6.0 release. Additionally I like Scientific repos with security and fastbugs updates, while CentOS has all on one bag.
