    Raiden has published a nice review of CentOS 5.3.

    And now: !!!.... with Live CD:

    Previously the absence of a 'live' option may have put some users off ??
    My experience is that as a desktop this is rock solid with all the tools you might need including codecs.
    Maybe not 'cutting edge' , but then again no eff-ups here either.
    No hours in forums or with MsGoogly :cautious:
    It's a bit like a Volvo: LOL: not perhaps 'sexy' per se, but just does the job.
    Dip a finger..
    All that RedHat power for free.

    Can always 'play' with other stuff.
    Anyone else like or no??

    Edit:
    Heh; having got all misty about 5.3, there are a few little niggles that might be an issue for some users, but nothing this dweeb couldn't get the head around: be interesting if anyone has any other opinions.

    @mrK: :eek: was looking for a comparison: not there ;)

    Very good news indeed. I have 5.3 on an elderly laptop, started with 5.2 partly
    on your recommendation, and then upgraded. I can confirm the rock solid part.
    Thanks for the info. :) :thumb:
