Today we have good news for those who love very long support server operating systems. CentOS 7 (1611) is out, an operating system that is based on the famous Red Hat Linux Enterprise, being the last operating system of the year in this company.
The most interesting thing about this version is that it comes with a very long support, about 8 years old, something without a doubt impressive and within the reach of few operating systems. This means that we can install it on our company's servers and spend 8 years without worrying about migrating to another system, since we will have 100% guaranteed support in this version.
This operating system has come out after a long development. Its main novelties are the inclusion of new packages such as Qt5 or pidgin. Support for the python library has also been improved and support for XNUMXth and XNUMXth generation Intel processors has been improved.
New terminal Gnome-terminal-nautilus has been added, support has been added with Btrfs, Ceph, KVM virtualization, Overlay FS and kpach among many other technologies. Finally, the bugs and errors detected in the previous versions have been corrected, in addition to updating all the packages to the latest version.
CentOS 7 (1611) is let's say the free version of the paid Red Hat but with certain differences, the main one being that it is a totally free operating system. This makes it one of the most popular operating systems in the Linux community, since it mixes the quality of Red Hat with a very stable support, a very involved user community and all without paying a single euro.
If you would like to download this latest version, do it as always from the main web, in which you have as always to choose a light version, a standard version that fits on DVD and a DVD9 version that has it all. Of course, remember that it is only compatible with 64 bits.
