Same here, they actually did say a few years ago(as far as I remember
shortly before Big Blue bought RH) that CentOS in the future would be
ahead of RHEL.
We've been using Springdale Open Enterprise Linux in some of our
clusters for about 4 years now, and I must say that the quality and the
speed at which Springdale is updated by the builders(ias.edu) is
unsurpassed. Springdale as a distro is older than CentOS, it was
formerly known as PUIAS Linux.
So, if you use CentOS, I can only recommend Springdale.
Excuse me, I'm off to persuade our ITOPS to move to Springdale :)
