What is CentOS?

The CentOS Project is a community-driven free software effort focused on delivering a robust open source ecosystem. For users, we offer a consistent manageable platform that suits a wide variety of deployments. For open source communities, we offer a solid, predictable base to build upon, along with extensive resources to build, test, release, and maintain their code.

The CentOS Project

The CentOS Project is a community-driven free software effort focused on delivering a robust open source ecosystem around a Linux platform.

We offer two Linux distros:

– CentOS Linux is a consistent, manageable platform that suits a wide variety of deployments. For some open source communities, it is a solid, predictable base to build upon.

– The new CentOS Stream is a rolling-release distro that tracks just ahead of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) development, positioned as a midstream between Fedora Linux and RHEL. For anyone interested in participating and collaborating in the RHEL ecosystem, CentOS Stream is your reliable platform for innovation.

In support of this community effort, the CentOS Project provides extensive resources to build, test, release, and maintain code on these platforms.

For more information about updates and improvements in CentOS Stream and CentOS Linux 8, please check out the CentOS Stream release notes and the CentOS Linux release notes or the release announcement in the mailing list archive. Information about other actively maintained CentOS Linux releases is available on the CentOS Linux 7 and CentOS Linux 6 release notes pages.
