Default Tired of Fedora, shopping for a new OS. Upgrade from F8 ? CentOS kernel versions ?

Scott Silva wrote:

Actually, CentOS 5 branched from Fedora 6. At that point they did a freeze on
changes to the OS.

That is not true, there are plenty of changes to the kernel, including
rebases's, updates, fix's and even new packages being added in and
obsolete ones being removed.

CentOS-5 today has little in functional terms common to fedora6. There
are still some leaf nodes from those days, but saying something like
'freeze on changes to the OS' is just wrong.
