CentOS (an acronym for Community enterprise Operating System) is an operating system designed to offer an enterprise level platform for anyone who wants to use GNU/Linux for professional purposes. It is a Linux distribution that comes from Red Hat Enterprise Linux, with which it tries to be totally compatible; for this reason, CentOS might be the perfect solution for anyone who wants to get an enhanced GNU/Linux system quickly, with the following benefits, among many more.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux is made up entirely of free software, but is available in a format that can only be used (such as binary CD-ROM) on a pay-per-use basis. As required by the GNU General Public License and other licenses, all the source code is made publicly available by Red Hat. The developers of CentOS use this code to create a product very similar to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, making it available free of charge to download and use, but without the support offered by Red Hat.


Administrative access is provided via SSH, with the root username and the password chosen during setup.


There are no particular customization options on this template, as this is a minimal CentOS installation that leaves space for any type of use.
