CentOS is a fairly well-known operating system (OS) that competes with Debian for the right to be called the best free source code server platform. This distribution was created on the basis of a commercial version of Enterprise Linux from Red Hat. Like "Debian", it has several branches and fork-projects, which are focused on server technologies with the use of free software.

Instead of a universal package manager, CentOS has a yum command that is responsible for downloading and installing RPM components from the main repository. GNOME or KDE can be installed as the desktop interface. And the graphical shell can be used to manage server machines. You can also specify which programs you want to see on your PC or laptop when you install the OS.

This distribution cannot boast of frequent updates of software packages. Downloading and installing the latest version of the application is often done by the user himself, not by the software. This is done in favor of stable and reliable operation of the OS on the servers. However, it is believed that CentOS is more secure than many of its competitors, including Debian and Ubuntu.

This environment is in demand among government officials, scientists, webmasters, administrators, programmers and other professionals who are in one way or another connected to the world of computer technology. Its main advantages are fully revealed in serious projects, which focus on the level of reliability and safety of the system. If you are looking for a stable Linux distribution for your home or work server, CentOS definitely deserves your attention.

- Docker support;

- Ability to install on computers with UEFI Secure Boot;

- Support for a stable version of the OS for 7 years.

I downloaded and unzipped CentOS for Windows the other day. It's open source and community driven. That's so cool. It is released by Microsoft. It is a group of server operating systems. My work uses it. I develop software on it. It is what it means to be part of a community. It runs on linus and windows. The geek in me is loving life.
