Hey everyone! Quick question: I had been studying for a certification, and having chosen CentOS as my distribution, the version that would be used in the test would be 6.4. I had to suspend my studying for a while, but now I wanted to pick it back up. It was recently announced that I can use either CentOS 6 or CentOS 7 — as I'm going to pick it back up, I'll essentially be starting from scratch, sooo.... Are there any reasons in particular why I should stick to 6 or change to 7?
(I asked this here since it does not seem like a good fit for the site, probably primarily opinion based)
@JNat I doubt it but I don't really do CentOS. As a general rule, the basics don't change. I doubt there will be any real differences. You should ask @slm when he's online though. He's our resident CentOS/Red Hat guy.
@terdon i think it will eventually become the standard on linux, so it is definitely worth learning. Aside from the vitriolic rhetoric surround it, from a user perspective not much actually changes and in my limited experience writing a systemd unit vs an init script, I'm happy with the systemd unit
@Seth I never really used IRC in the past. When I started playing around in Linux (a year ago or a bit more) I started using it here and there, but it never stuck to me, so I always end up forgetting about it.
@JNat It's used quite extensively in the FOSS community. Matter of fact freenode is almost entirely dedicated to FOSS/OSS projects. I never used it, or even heard of it either until I started using Linux either :p
