 +===== CentOS ===== 
 + 
 +CentOS is an abbreviation of Community Enterprise Operating System. ​ It is developed in tandem with Red Hat Linux, designed to be compatible with the corresponding Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. ​ While associated with Red Hat Inc., CentOS maintains its independence from the corporation. ​ Its development is overseen by a [[https://​www.centos.org/​about/​governance/​|Governing Board]] made up by a board of 8-11 members and a collection of special interest groups.
