CentOS turns 6.1, still trails Red Hat by a lap

Filed under
Linux

As usual with CentOS releases, there's not much to talk about in version 6.1 because the distro is a free community clone of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.1, released back in May. In addition, RHEL 6.1 appears to be a relatively minor release compared with versions 6.0 and 6.2.

Nevertheless, a CentOS release is always newsworthy in the Linux world due to its continuing popularity. The server-focused distro has ranked between seven and 10 on the DistroWatch page rankings over the last year.

Considering that Red Hat has just released RHEL 6.2, the CentOS community has once again fallen behind Red Hat's development schedule, although it is a bit more timely this time compared to the much delayed CentOS 6.0 released in early July.
