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.

If you're installing on hundreds of desktops one at at time, you're doing something wrong. You should be pushing images or using kickstart for that many machines.

Still, having used both the Fedora installer multiple times and now the CentOS 7 installer, I simply don't understand the complaints about it.

It's fairly straightforward considering the options it has to expose.
